The 97th session of the Gulf Cooperation Council's Ministerial Council started in Abu Dhabi yesterday to prepare for the GCC summit, scheduled to be held on 18 December in Abu Dhabi. The session was opened with a speech by Rashid Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Foreign Minister, in which he welcomed his GCC counterparts and urged more efforts to bolster cooperation among GCC countries.

"Since its establishment, the GCC has made considerable achievements. However, peoples of the GCC countries aspire for more achievements which requires further efforts to realise them," Al Nuaimi said. He said yesterday's meeting translates the great interest of the GCC governments and peoples in the joint action of the GCC countries.

"Current developments and rapid changes require all to join forces and to deal carefully with such developments, especially those taking place in our region like continuation of Iranian occupation of the UAE three islands of Greater Tunb, Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa, as well as developments in Iraq and Palestine and the terrorist acts of killing innocent people." Al Nuaimi referred to the meeting's agenda which includes economic, social, environmental and political issues.

He welcomed Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al khalifa, Bahraini Foreign Minister, into the council's meetings and congratulated him on his appointment. The ministers then held closed door session to draft the GCC summit's agenda before submitting it to the GCC leaders during their summit. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
