GCC Troops Arrive in Bahrain
06 : 54 PM - 14/03/2011

Manama, March 14. (BNA) - Troops from the GCC Peninsula Shield Force have started arriving to Bahrain in light of the regretful situation the kingdom is currently witnessing.

The move is in line with the principle of common destiny bonding GCC states, which indicates that safeguarding security and stability across the GCC region is a collective responsibility.

It also follows the decisions taken by the GCC Foreign Ministers during their most recent meeting in which they voiced their un-wavering support for the kingdom.

On this occasion, the Bahrain Defence Forces (BDF) calls upon all citizens and residents to cooperate fully with the GCC forces and welcome them warmly.
