    Default GCC to Confront Iraq Security Fallout

    RIYADH, 4 July 2007 — GCC defense and foreign ministers held a joint meeting here yesterday, emphasizing the need for greater cooperation among member countries to confront the fallout from the worsening security situation in neighboring Iraq.
    “Our meeting was held today on the instructions of GCC leaders to discuss how to deal with the consequences of the dangerous situation in Iraq,” said Prince Abdul Rahman, deputy minister of defense and aviation, who chaired the meeting.
    Addressing the extraordinary meeting, Prince Abdul Rahman called for taking a joint decision to confront the challenge that threatens GCC security. The Gulf Cooperation Council groups Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.
    “What is happening in Iraq now is definitely going to affect the security and stability of our countries,” the prince said. “So, we have to make all possible efforts to stop the worsening situation in Iraq and protect its national unity and territorial integrity.”
    The Saudi minister also urged greater GCC involvement to realize Iraqi national reconciliation in order to help the Iraqis stand united in the face of sectarian violence and terrorist threats.
    The Arab ministerial committee on Iraq, which met in Cairo recently, had called for a conference with the participation of all Iraqi groups to achieve their reconciliation, strengthen their unity and bring security and stability to their country.
    GCC Secretary-General Abdul Rahman Al-Attiyah also cautioned about the fast moving dangerous developments in Iraq and its impact on the Gulf region.
    The GCC leaders in their last consultative meeting instructed their defense and foreign ministers as well as intelligence directors to hold a joint meeting to adopt a joint stand on the Iraqi security situation and its dangerous implications.
    Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Al-Attiyah said the ministers and security officers had reviewed the security challenges in the region and how to confront them. He said a similar meeting had taken place in Jeddah three years ago.
    “It is only natural that ministers from these sectors gather and exchange their opinions on the developments in the region,” the GCC chief said, adding that the views exchanged during the meeting dealt with political, economic, and defense matters. “A number of committees have been formed to meet regularly and review matters of interest concerning the three sectors,” he added.
    Al-Attiyah said another GCC meeting would be held in Jeddah tomorrow with the participation of foreign ministers.

    Iraq can not fail IMO, Noone is going to let it fail, i think that if the US troops do pull out of iraq that the UAE and other GCC member countries will step in.

    Either way IRAQ WILL NOT FAIL!

    It just may take some time.

    Nice find Pearce, however as reported by the numerous news services and the military, more suicide bombers are coming across the border and are Saudis. The Saudis are responsible for most of the outside violence and terrorism that is going on in Iraq. We have pretty much stopped the IEDs just read the military reports and what is actually going on. We need to get the other Arab nations out of there and let them get back to their business.

    Accounts of those supporting and aiding terrorist are to be frozen. I suspect this action should have good results.
