Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Dr. Abdullatif Al-Zayyani said Wednesday night the just-ended 13th consultative meeting of the GCC interior ministers reached results that will help guard against the common security hazards facing the GCC countries.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Dr. Al-Zayyani said the ministers reaffirmed pledge to coordinate the efforts of the security services of their countries in the face of the common challenges.
"The GCC countries face a tendentious media campaign that aims to instigate sectarianism and undermine the stability and security of our countries," he cautioned.
"The interior ministers appreciated the adoption by the GCC leaders of the initiative of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz for the GCC transition from cooperation to union.
"They renewed commitment to collective security which is the key for protecting the achievements made by our countries in economic and social domains," Dr. Al-Zayyani pointed out.
"The ministers stated opposition to any foreign intervention in the domestic affairs of the GCC countries, highlighting the need for respecting the principles of neighborliness," he added.
