The crown prince said that the agreement, “affirms the importance of the solidarity and stability in the Gulf, Arab and Islamic countries and strengthens the bonds of friendship and brotherhood among our countries and peoples in order to serve their aspirations.”

The crown prince also called for the GCC to unite against Iranian threats.
