Updated July 24, 2020 | Infoplease Staff

The Question:

I am a student of international relations at the University of Geneva, and I am researching a paper about the relations between UAE and Iran, and I would like know where I can find information about the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC).

The Answer:

The GCC is an association of Persian Gulf nations formed for the purpose of collective defense against aggression.

For information about which countries are members and some background information on the organization, check out the IMF web site.

A good source of news about the organization is UAE interact. We hope this helps.
