WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Kerry told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee:
“In three days, I will be meeting with the whole GCC in Doha to lay out the very specifics of the proposal for how we are going to push back against Iran.”
Following the signing of the Iran nuclear agreement on July 14, the administration of US President Barack Obama has promised to more actively counter Iranian regional activities.
Gulf media outlets reported last week that Kerry would be meeting with Gulf countries to oppose Iranian aggression in the Middle East.
According to the US State Department, the primary purpose of Kerry’s visit is to reassure those allies on the merits of the recent Iranian nuclear agreement.
The GCC is a regional union comprising Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, which strongly objected to the recent deal with Tehran.
