GCC SUMMIT - Report from Kuwait

Issue 136 - 10 Dec 1984
"A complete success" is how Shaikh Sabah al Ahmad, Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and Minister of Information, described the recent Fifth Gulf Co-operation Council Summit in Kuwait. If Shaikh Sabah, the Conference spokesman, was referring to the slick organisational arrangements for the meeting of the six Gulf Heads of State and the elaborate publicity given to the events, then his claim is justified. Apart from these manifestations, however', and a general air of amiable unanimity, the summit produced (in its public pronouncements) little more than reaffirmations and reiterations of the participants' already known and announced political positions.
