    Background: MANAMA, BAHRAIN

    The Iran-Iraq conflict is expected to dominate the third summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which opened in Bahrain on November 9. Leaders of the six-member states - King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahayan of the United Arab Emirates, Sultan Qaboos Bin Said of Oman, Sheikh Khalifa Bin Hamad Al-Thani of Qatar, Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah of Kuwait, and their host Sheikh Isa Bin Sulman Al-Khalifa gathered in Manama to discuss joint political and economic issues. On the eve of the summit, the Bahrain Foreign Ministry announced that GCC members wished to have good relations with Iran for the good of the area. Fear of the Gulf war had been a decisive factor in the creation of the 18-month-old Council. Iraq has so far received about 30 billion dollars in war loans from council members who have also backed international mediation efforts to end the war. During their two days of talks, the six Gulf rulers will also discuss security and defence policies, and other issues concerning the Middle East, notably Lebanon.
