The GCC higher military committee convened its third consultative meeting here yesterday under the chairmanship of Kuwaiti Army Chief of Staff Sheikh Ahmad Al-Khaled Al-Sabah. The meeting was attended by the army chiefs of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Qatar, as well as the commander of the GCC Al-Jazeera Shield Force.

The meeting is part of efforts aiming to further promote and reinforce cooperation among the GCC member states and to embody the spirit of common integration within the framework of the GCC. It also comes at the behest of the GCC leaders who have instructed that inter-GCC military capabilities be boosted.

During the meeting, they mainly mulled over a Bahraini vision for developing defensive and security cooperation among the GCC member states. The conferees seized the opportunity to congratulate His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and other Kuwaiti leaders as well as the Kuwaiti people on the country's national festivals. They also thanked the Kuwaiti army for warm welcome and hospitability as well as for holding this successful military meeting.
