GCC mulls cooperation with EU
Abdulaziz bin Hamad Al-Owaisheq, Assistant Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council for Political Affairs and Negotiations, met on Thursday with the EU delegation's ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

The meeting addressed regional and international issues and ways to promote bilateral cooperation as part of a bilateral agreement signed in 1988.

The two sides discussed a number of joint former and future activities, including the 29th joint meeting, the ninth economic dialogue and a workshop on unemployment slated for October in Kuwait.

The GCC consists of all Arab states of the Arabian Gulf except Iraq. Its member states are Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
