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.
