WAM MANAMA: The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani on Monday hailed the success story of the GCC and its landmark achievements since its inception over thirty years ago.

In his speech at the opening session of the 33rd GCC Summit, Al-Zayani said “the GCC has proved its clout and cohesion, withstanding fast regional and Arab political and economic changes and upheavals.” He affirmed the ability of the GCC to stave off foreign designs targeting its gains, stability, and security and interfering in its internal affairs.

Al-Zayani also said the current summit is being held amid festivities marking the National Days in the UAE, the Kingdom of Bahrain and Qatar.
