|By Arabian Post Staff| All eyes are on the next GCC annual GCC summit to be held in Kuwait on December 5 and 6. This is the first annual summit after the rift with Qatar dogged the pan-Gulf alliance.
Gulf officials said the summit will go ahead despite an ongoing dispute between GCC members Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE, on one side, and Qatar on the other. The imbroglio had put this year’s annual meeting in doubt.
A senior Kuwaiti official confirmed that the meeting would take place on Dec. 5 and 6, but said the level of representation was not clear yet.
Two Gulf diplomats also said Kuwait, which had led unsuccessful mediation efforts between the two sides, would try again to use the meeting to resolve the rift.
Bahrain said last month it will not attend the summit if Qatar does not change its policies and Qatar should have its membership in the six-nation group suspended.
