Bahrain MP calls for Gulf Army

A Bahraini MP says she looks forward to a unified Gulf Army as a prelude to the Gulf Union. Sawsan Al Taqawi was speaking on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

“As we celebrate this glorious anniversary, we look forward to more accelerated paces towards moving from the stage of cooperation to the long due stage of unity,” MP Sawsan said. “The unity is a vision shared by the leaders and people of the Gulf and the GCC should achieve it in order to fulfil the aspirations and anticipations of the region,” she said.

“The GCC has achieved outstanding accomplishments for the Gulf people, but there is a lot more that should be achieved as well. There is a need to boost the progress towards the unity and achieve further progress and prosperity for the Arabian Gulf countries,” she said.

Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz in December 2011 called upon the six member countries of the GCC to move from the phase of cooperation to the phase of unity within a single entity.

The call was endorsed by the member states and an ad-hoc committee was set up to look into it.
