My Dear Brothers,
Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you

I am pleased to welcome you in your second state and wished you a pleasant stay. I ask Allah Almighty to crown our efforts with success. I express my deep thanks and appreciation of Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of the State of Qatar for his successful efforts through his chairmanship of the Supreme Council at its previous session for enhancing the blessed march of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Dear brothers,

The region is passed with very complicated conditions, challenges and ambitions which require us to stand and work together to continue to fortify our countries against foreign threats and extending a helping hand to our brothers in order to restore security and stability in addition to addressing challenges facing our Arab region and resolving their issues, including the Palestinian Cause and restoration of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state with Al-Quds as its capital.

Regarding Yemen, the coalition countries are keen to achieve security and stability in Yemen under the leadership of its legitimate government. We, the GCC states, support a peaceful solution in order to enable Yemen overcoming the crisis and restoring its march towards construction and development.
In the Syrian affairs, the Kingdom is hosting the Syrian opposition as a support of finding a political solution to guarantee the unity of the Syrian territory in accordance with the decisions of the (Geneva 1).

All states in world must share responsibility in the fight against extremism and terrorism and elimination of whatever its source. The Kingdom exert great efforts in combating terrorism and will continue its efforts in cooperation and coordination with the brotherly and friendly countries in this regard, stressing that terrorism has no religion. Our religion rejected terrorism. Our religion is a religion of moderation.

My Dear Brothers,

Our meeting today came following thirty-five years of the council's establishment. It is an appropriate time to assess the achievements and look forward to the future. With the council's achievements, our citizens are looking forward for tangible achievements.

To achieve that, we are confident that we will exert all efforts to work to achieve concrete results in order to enhance the march of cooperation and coherence among our countries and support the status of the council at the international arenas. We have to find economic and social environment supporting the welfare of the citizens and work in accordance with the active foreign policy aiming to avert our countries of the regional conflicts and promote restoration of the security and stability for the neighboring countries as well as to complete what we started to build a joint defense and security system for protecting the interests of our countries, peoples and gains.

Wasslamou Aleykum Wa Rahmatou Allah Wa Barakatouhou
