GCC pledges support for leadership

SECRETARY-GENERAL of the GCC Abdulrahman bin Hamad Al Attiyah yesterday reiterated its members' full solidarity with Bahrain's leadership and people in line with the principle of common destiny linking the member states.

He said that safeguarding security and stability in one country is a collective responsibility.

Mr Al Attiyah called upon all parties to respond positively to the call for dialogue by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander, as soon as possible to reach solutions that boost national cohesion and pave the way to carry on the political and economic development under the reform project set in motion by His Majesty.

He expressed his strong rejection of any foreign interference in Bahrain's internal affairs, asserting that any acts aiming to distabilise the kingdom and sow dissension among its citizens represent a dangerous encroachment on the whole GCC security and stability.
