Key security talks in Kuwait

GDN Online Desk

Kuwait City: Gulf Arab army chiefs, including Qatar’s military commander, will meet US Central Command officials for talks on defence co-operation this week, a Kuwaiti official said yesterday. Speaking on condition of anonymity, an official with Kuwait’s defence ministry said army commanders of the Gulf states would hold talks today in a scheduled meeting of the GCC Supreme Military Committee in Kuwait City.

The Gulf commanders will also meet representatives of the US Central Command and those of the Egyptian and Jordanian armies on Wednesday, the Kuwaiti official told AFP. In July, Kuwait’s Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid Al Jarallah said his country was considering US proposals for a strategic alliance in the Middle East to counter Iran’s influence in the region.
