Saudi Arabia hosts GCC summit in Riyadh
December 09, 2018

Saudi Arabia is hosting Gulf Cooperation Council’s summit in Riyadh with regional unity imperiled by a bitter row between Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

GCC Secretary-General Dr. Abdul Latif Al-Zayani said one-day annual gathering of leaders from six member states is expected to focus on security issues including Yemen war and Iran’s regional activities.

Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and non-GCC member Egypt cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar in June 2017 over allegations of supporting terrorism.
