KUWAIT, Dec 3 (KUNA) -- Leaders or their representatives will arrive in the State of Kuwait to partake in the 38th Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Summit due here on Tuesday in a step aimed at continuing the legacy of the grand meeting.
The GCC Summit was held on 37 occasions since 1981 with the first one in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in May.
The second summit was held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on November of 1981 while the third and fourth meetings were held in Manama, Bahrain, and Doha, Qatari, in 1982 and 1983 respectively.
The fifth Gulf Summit was held in Kuwait in 1984 while the Omani capital Muscat hosted the sixth event in 1985.
From 1986-1989, the seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth summits were held in Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Manama, Muscat.
In 1990, Doha hosted the 11th summit followed by Kuwait hosting the 12th summit, and Abu Dhabi hosting the 13th event in 1992.
The 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th GCC Summits were held between 1993 and 1996 in Riyadh, Manama, Muscat, and Doha.
In 1997 and 1998, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi respectively hosted the 18th and 19th GCC Summits while in 1999 and 2000, the Saudi and Bahraini capitals, Riyadh and Manama respectively, hosted the 20th and 21st Summits.
From 2001 until 2016, the GCC capitals took turns in hosting the GCC Summits.
The 2004 Manama-hosted 25th GCC summit was named after late Sheikh Zayed Al Nuhayyan whereas the 26th summit in Abu Dhabi in 2005 was named after late Saudi King Fahd bin Abdulaziz.
The State of Kuwait will be hosting the 38th Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Summit on December 5-6, continuing a long legacy of Gulf brotherhood and friendship.
Since 1981, Kuwait hosted six summits out of the 37 gatherings held throughout the years. The GCC Summits main aim is to bolster cooperation amongst the members of the council on all possible levels.
Kuwait hosted the summit on six occasions in 1984, 1991, 1997, 2003, 2009, and 2013.
The summits resulted in several resolutions contributing to the development of cooperation and security among GCC members. (end) eh.gta
