Gulf Arab states reject Iranian influence in region - Al Arabiya

DUBAI (Reuters) - The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) rejected on Wednesday what it said was Iranian interference in the region, Al Arabiya television said according to a statement by the regional body.

The foreign ministers of the GCC countries - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman - who were meeting in Riyadh, also affirmed their support for a political solution in Syria.

The GCC statement also demanded a mechanism to impose a ceasefire in Syria.
