HH THE EMIR IN RIYADH FOR GCC SUMMIT
Emirs from six Gulf states began two days of talks on the march of joint work, political, social and economic changes being experienced by the region and the world, and their direct repercussions on the Gulf Cooperation Council. Upon arrival in the Saudi capital of Riyadh for the annual summit, HH the Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said, “It gives me pleasure to greet my brothers the GCC leaders who are taking part in the session, which we hope it would deliver results living up to the level of the extremely serious regional and international challenges and contribute to enhancing the GCC drive and realizing its aspired objectives.” The council, among other things, called for political solutions to the wars in Syria and Yemen, while condemning terrorism. During the same period, Riyadh also hosted a meeting of the Syrian opposition, trying to bring together various warring factions and come to a common consensus to ending the five-year civil war.
