Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - — KUNA

The GCC min­is­te­rial com­mit­tee, re­spon­si­ble for fol­low­ing up on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of GCC sum­mits’ res­o­lu­tions, held its 16th meet­ing in Riyadh yes­ter­day with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Kuwait’s Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Khaled Al-Jar­ral­lah.

Speak­ing at the open­ing ses­sion, Bahraini Min­is­ter of Shura Coun­cil and House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Af­fairs Ghanim bin Fad­hil AlBuay­nayn un­der­lined the im­por­tance of the meet­ing in but­tress­ing co­op­er­a­tion and co­or­di­na­tion among Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil mem­ber states. He added that the com­mit­tee was es­tab­lished dur­ing the Gulf sum­mit held in Oman in 2008 to help boost in­te­gra­tion among Gulf coun­tries.

Mean­while, GCC Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Dr Ab­du­latif Al-Zayani stated that the min­is­te­rial meet­ing has re­viewed rec­om­men­da­tions re­ferred to it from the GCC joint ac­tion com­mit­tee on the way to en­hance eco­nomic, po­lit­i­cal, so­cial, mil­i­tary and se­cu­rity in­te­gra­tion among Gulf states.

He noted that the Gulf lead­ers en­dorsed in their 16th con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing in Jeddah, in May 2016, a res­o­lu­tion to ce­ment bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion and over­come ob­sta­cles im­ped­ing joint ac­tion through the for­ma­tion of a joint eco­nomic and de­vel­op­ment com­mis­sion. He noted that the com­mis­sion would start its ac­tiv­i­ties in the com­ing days.

Zayani also noted that the lead­ers have rat­i­fied the char­ter of the eco­nomic-ju­di­ciary author­ity. He added that such res­o­lu­tions would have tan­gi­ble ef­fect on the joint Gulf ac­tions in the com­ing pe­riod. He lauded the re­lent­less ef­forts ex­erted by the min­is­te­rial com­mit­tee to give im­pe­tus to the Gulf joint ac­tions to help meet the as­pi­ra­tions of Gulf na­tions.
