The Persian Gulf will be covered by the American missile defense system
At Camp David, in the country residence of the President of the United States, the summit of the Cooperation Council for the Arab countries of the Persian Gulf has ended. Commenting on the results of the meeting of representatives of Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Barack Obama said: The States still intend to support their Arab allies, including through the creation of a regional air defense system, equipment and military force.
The United States considers maintaining security in the region and preserving its territorial integrity one of its top priorities. For the sake of peace and prosperity in the region, in which, as Barack Obama assured, the United States is deeply interested, Washington is ready not only to help the allies develop their own missile defense system (including an early warning system), but also to transfer weapons at an accelerated pace and provide instructors for training border guards and special forces. The number of joint exercises will also be increased.
Reaffirming his readiness to defend his allies from any external invasion, Barack Obama promised at the same time to resist “Iran’s destabilizing activities” as much as possible. Anticipating the fears of the leaders of the states of the Arabian Peninsula, the US President said that the nuclear deal with Iran, which the United States still seeks to conclude, would not pose any threat to the Gulf countries and would not bring additional destabilization. And by all appearances, President Obama was able to convince the Arab Cooperation Council that potential cooperation between the US and Iran on the nuclear program could take place – this was noted in a joint statement that the GCC leaders also issued after the summit.
Another direction of the joint efforts of the “Arab Six” and the United States is the fight against the terrorists of “Al-Qaeda”** and “Islamic State”*. It will include both deterrent measures, protecting infrastructure, strengthening borders and ensuring aviation security, as well as direct countering the financing of terrorism.
The military rhetoric of the summit was diluted with a somewhat paradoxical summary: armed civil conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen “can only be resolved by political and peaceful means.” Although, according to Obama, the States are ready to fight for peace in the Gulf countries “up to military intervention.”
The next meeting of the President of the United States with the heads of the GCC states is scheduled for 2016.
- The “Islamic State” was recognized as a terrorist organization, whose activities in Russia were officially banned by the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of December 29, 2014.
“Imarat Kavkaz” (“Caucasian Emirate”) is an international organization officially banned in Russia.
The Islamic Party of Turkestan (formerly the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan) is an international organization officially banned in Russia.
- The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation dated 11/13/2008 No. GKPI 08-1956, entered into force on 11/27/2008 recognized the Al-Qaeda organization as extremist and banned on the territory of Russia
