The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) expressed its support for a political solution in Syria and stressed on the importance of keeping Syria’s territories unified in a joint statement Wednesday, Al Arabiya news channel reported.

The Gulf states also urged the Security Council for a process that could impose a more effective ceasefire in Syria.

They also reiterated their rejection to Iran’s interference in the region and emphasized that Lebanon’s Shiite organization Hezbollah is “terrorist.”

The statement comes after the GCC’s foreign ministers including their Jordanian and Moroccan counterparts met in Riyadh.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia’s council of ministers also reaffirmed GCC’s decision that Hezbollah and its affiliated factions are “terrorists.”
