The first Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) security mobilization exercise will be held late this year.
Bahrain’s Public Security Chief Major-General Tariq bin Hassan Al-Hassan chaired the third meeting of the High Joint Security Mobilization Exercise Commission.
The drill, dubbed “Arabian Gulf Security 1” will be held following the resolutions taken by the GCC Interior Ministers to enhance competence and efficiency in dealing with regional security challenges.
Bahrain’s Chief of Public Security welcomed Heads of the delegations for the three-day meeting taking place in Manama this week, hailing efforts of the participants from the brotherly countries.
He said that planning for the exercise is in the right track, especially because it is the first by GCC Interior Ministries to activate the security agreement and enhance cooperation and coordination between Gulf countries in facing crisis and emergencies, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported.
The meeting highlighted suggestions of the authority’s committees and teams and discussed the suggestions of the planning team assigned to plan the scenario of the joint exercise. The meeting also distributed duties among committees and teams that will be formed to implement the exercise.
