War on Iran? NATO Holds High Level Consultations With Four Gulf Countries

Brussels: NATO permanent representatives met senior officials from Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, the four countries which are part of the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative (ICI), at a seminar at NATO headquarters on Tuesday to discuss ways to deepen their partnership ahead of NATO’s Chicago Summit in May.

A NATO announcement today noted that exactly one year since an ambassadorial seminar in Doha, this was an opportunity to review the significant achievements of the past year, such as the political and practical contribution of countries, according to a report of Kuwait News Agency “KUNA”.

Other issues discussed included NATO’s Operation Unified Protector in Libya, the support for the UN-mandated ISAF operation in Afghanistan and the development of closer consultative mechanisms following the adoption of NATO’s new Strategic Concept at the Lisbon Summit in 2010.
