Qatar participated in the meetings of the 15th session of the Supreme Military Committee of GCC Chiefs of Staff in Kuwait on Monday. Qatar’s delegation was headed by Chief of Staff of Qatari Armed Forces HE Lieutenant-General (Pilot) Ghanem bin Shaheen al Ghanim. Discussions during the meetings dealt with several issues that would contribute to enhancing the future of Gulf defence policy, in addition to strengthening coordination in the areas of military cooperation among member states in accordance with a unified strategy that serves the common Gulf security, reported QNA.

Kuwaiti Chief-of-Staff Mohammed al-Khoder used the meeting to call for an end to the year-long Saudi-led boycott of Qatar, as he said:

"The region is going through accelerating challenges. It is imperative that we preserve Gulf bonds and join forces to preserve this organisation and move away from anything that disturbs Gulf unity," Khoder said, according to The New Arab's Arabic-language service.
