Al-Atiyyah on the GCC Consultative summit
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 11 - 05 - 2010

Abdulrahman bin Hamad Al-Atiyyah, the Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), said the GCC leaders held their 12th Consultative summit in Riyadh earlier today at an invitation of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and under his chairmanship.
In a press statement following the meeting, Al-Atiyyah said the leaders of the GCC welcomed the strenuous efforts exerted by Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Emir of Kuwait who holds the current rotating presidency of the GCC, and his interest to further push the common march of the group's member countries towards more progress and prosperity for their peoples.
They also welcomed the visit of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to Bahrain on 18-19 April 2010 and his meetings with King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa of Bahrain, lauding the spirit of common fraternity and confidence that prevailed the meeting.
In this regard, they paid tribute to the directives of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz to build a medical city to be affiliated to the Arab Gulf University in Bahrain at an estimated cost of SR1 billion. They also lauded the historical decision of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to establish King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy in Saudi Arabia, underscoring the importance of securing additional and future sources for all kinds of energy and preserving the depleting wealth for coming decades and generations.
The GCC leaders also welcomed the signing of a framework agreement between The Sudan Government and Justice and Equality Movement in Doha on 23rd of February 2010 as well as a ceasefire agreement between The Sudan Government and the Liberation and Justice Movement in Doha on March 18, 2010 to help solve the conflict in Darfur under the patronage of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of Qatar.
They also praised the Qatari leader's efforts in leading the Arab, African and International Committee in charge of settling Darfur crisis and his endeavor to set up a development bank at a capital of $ 1 billion for Darfur, a facility open for all interested parties in the settlement of the conflict in that region.
