GCC states agreed to create a joint rapid deployment force to threats in the region.


The force would intervene in situations similar to an incursion into Saudi Arabia by Yemeni Shi'ite rebels earlier this year, GCC Secretary General Abdulrahman Al Attiyah yesterday told a news conference at a summit of Gulf Leaders.

'The force will be one of the pillars that will support stability and security in the region,' he was quoted as saying in a report in Gulf Daily News.
