Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS -

At the 35th GCC Sum­mit held in Doha last month, the GCC mem­ber states dis­cussed the cre­ation of a re­gional po­lice force in ad­di­tion to a joint naval force to im­prove co­op­er­a­tion against ter­ror­ism.

The po­lice force will be based out of the United Arab Emi­rates' cap­i­tal of Abu Dhabi while the naval force will op­er­ate out of Bahrain. The cre­ation of the po­lice force, known as GCC-POL, and the naval force was an­nounced at the con­clu­sion of the Gulf bloc's an­nual sum­mit.

The lead­ers also re­it­er­ated their sup­port for a po­lit­i­cal so­lu­tion in both Ye­men and Syria and con­demned the mili­tias cur­rently op­er­at­ing in Libya.

They also voiced their sup­port for the Libyan elected na­tional coun­cil as the le­git­i­mate body to gov­ern the coun­try. Ad­di­tion­ally, the communique an­nounced that the lead­ers unan­i­mously sup­ported the po­lit­i­cal roadmap in Egypt and Pres­i­dent Ab­dul Fat­tah Al Sisi.
