The meeting comes amid radical security changes in the region that require great cooperation to overcome the challenges they raised, Kuwait Interior Ministry Undersecretary Suleiman Al-Fahad said at the meeting, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
He stressed the need to improve the security capabilities and strengthen security ties between the GCC countries. Gulf States who face danger are aware of, sedition and terrorist acts being planned against them to be tackled in a decisive, forceful, prepared and coordinated manner, he argued.
Al-Fahad underlined the need to work to support and defend the GCC societies from deviant and extremist ideologies which target our youth.
