Tribute was yesterday paid to GCC countries that came to Bahrain’s aid in March, when Peninsula Shield troops arrived to guard key facilities as police regained control of the streets from protesters.
“GCC is an entity that gathers us and strengthens our unity, identity and geographical positions,” said His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander, as he received GCC Secretary-General Dr Abdullatif Al Zayani at Riffa Palace.
“GCC has ably managed to protect our achievements and secure our nations through the regretful events Bahrain witnessed,” he added. HRH the Crown Prince also praised the role of Dr Al Zayani, a Bahraini, in co-ordinating GCC’s political, economic and social interests.
Dr Al Zayani stressed GCC backing to His Majesty King Hamad’s initiatives to achieve stability, peace and transparency.
