Bahrain – Foreign Ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council member states will hold a preparatory meeting on Thursday in Bahrain ahead of the 37th Gulf Summit that will take place in Manama next month.

Al Zayani said Thursday’s meeting comes in preparation of the 37th Gulf Supreme Council Summit, which will be held in the Bahraini capital in December.

He added that the foreign ministers would discuss the implementation of the resolutions by the Supreme Council within the framework of achieving integration and promoting cooperation between the different member states.
