But First A Backgrounder From Art Intelli:

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a regional intergovernmental organization consisting of six Arab countries in the Arabian Gulf region. It was established on May 25, 1981, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with the aim of promoting economic, political, and security cooperation among its member states.

The member countries of the GCC are:

  1. Saudi Arabia
  2. United Arab Emirates (UAE)
  3. Kuwait
  4. Qatar
  5. Bahrain
  6. Oman

The GCC was formed to enhance collaboration in various areas, including trade, investment, finance, defense, and cultural exchange. Over the years, the member states have worked together on a wide range of issues, including economic integration, infrastructure development, and joint security efforts.

One of the notable initiatives of the GCC is the establishment of the Gulf Common Market in 2008, which aimed to create a unified economic market within the member countries, allowing for the free movement of goods, services, capital, and labor.

However, the GCC has also faced challenges, including internal disagreements among its members, such as the diplomatic crisis between Qatar and some of its neighbors in 2017. This crisis strained relations within the organization and highlighted some of the underlying political tensions among member states.

The GCC has been an important player in the geopolitics of the Middle East, and its activities have implications for regional stability, energy markets (as many GCC countries are major oil and gas producers), and international relations. It's important to note that my knowledge is based on information available up until September 2021, so there may have been developments since that time.
