Ahead of this session, GCC secretary-general Nayef Al Hajraf welcomed the agreement to open the airspace, land, and sea borders between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which was announced by Kuwait’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmed Nasser Al-Muhammad Al-Sabah.

“This step reflects the great interest and sincere efforts being made to ensure the success of the summit, which is held under exceptional circumstances,” he added.

Moreover, Al Hajraf stressed that gulf nationals are proud of this step, looking forward to strengthening GCC with all hopes, aspirations, and opportunities towards a coherent and solid Gulf bloc that works to serve its countries and peoples and advances development, progress, security, and stability.
