Trump to meet with Gulf leaders to discuss Iran’s interference

Published: Updated:

US President Donald Trump on Sunday will be meeting with heads from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to discuss the region’s security threats including the ones coming from Iran as well as trade ties.

While Trump readies for his fully packed schedule on Sunday, the US-Gulf summit, which begins at 10:45 am local time in Riyadh, is aimed at addressing security issues and completing a Gulf defense system.

The closed meeting with the six-member GCC’s heads is not the first Gulf-US summit.

The meeting follows two previous Gulf-US summits held in 2015, 2016 in Camp David and Riyadh respectively during the Obama’s administration.

GCC includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi and UAE.
