Bahrain and Saudi vow GCC solidarity

BAHRAIN and Saudi Arabia have stressed the importance of further strengthening GCC solidarity.

This came as His Majesty King Hamad held a meeting yesterday with Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud at his palace in Riyadh.

They stressed full and accurate implementation of the AlUla Declaration, issued in January last year after a GCC Summit, aiming to achieve economic unity, finalise joint defence and security systems and co-ordinate stances.

The summit declaration also aimed to expedite bilateral work among GCC states to remove all pending issues and enhance their regional role through unifying political positions, and develop political partnerships with the international community as well as regional and international organisations.

Both leaders directed officials to speed up the execution of the King Hamad Causeway project, which will constitute a landmark and a distinctive addition in the deeply-rooted history of Bahraini-Saudi relations.

They discussed regional developments and their impact on security and stability.

King Salman commended Bahrain’s stances, under the leadership His Majesty, and its efforts to promote the GCC march and foster security and stability in the region.

Later, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques held a lunch banquet in honour of the King.

His Majesty was earlier welcomed on arrival by Saudi Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The King later returned to Bahrain.
