Killing bin Laden helps fight against terror: GCC

The six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council Wednesday called for "intensified efforts" to fight all forms of terror after welcoming the killing of Osama bin Laden.



Abu Dhabi: The six-nation Gulf Cooperation
Council Wednesday called for "intensified efforts" to fight all forms of terror after welcoming the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Interior ministers of GCC nations, including Saudi
Arabia, rejected "terrorism and extremism in all its forms"
and expressed the hope that the US killing on bin Laden will
boost an international anti-terror drive.

After a meeting in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the
United Arab Emirates, the ministers urged "intensified efforts
to eradicate all forms of support to terrorism and end
practices against the values and principles of Islam," their
statement said.

The GCC comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi
Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Saudi Arabia already welcomed the killing of bin
Laden, who was born and brought up in the kingdom, as a boost
to international anti-terror efforts.

Saudi Arabia had experienced a wave of Al-Qaeda
attacks targeting oil installations and foreign interests
between 2003 and 2006.
