GCC to establish quick-reaction force to defend members


Members of the Gulf Cooperation Council agreed to establish a regional quick-reaction force in part due to conflict along the Yemeni border with Saudi Arabia.

Gulf leaders at their annual summit of the GCC in Kuwait said the regime was concerned about clashes between al-Houthi rebels in Yemen along the border with Saudi Arabia, The National newspaper reports.

“Any violation of the security and stability of the brotherly kingdom of Saudi Arabia represents an aggression on all the security of the GCC countries,” said Kuwait Emir Sabah al-Jaber al-Ahmed al-Sabah. “We support our Saudi brothers in all the actions they take to defend their sovereignty.” Source: UPI
