Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim, the former Prime Minister of Qatar, sent a message to the Arab Gulf states regarding the union between them. He called for establishing independent legal and judicial legislations, litigation procedures and fair laws that protect the rights of all members of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

The basic pillars of the federation

Hamad bin Jassim said, in a series of tweets monitored by “Watan”: “We used to talk about a Gulf union that has the basic pillars for the establishment and continuation of a strong union such as a single currency.”

He pointed out that this union has unified military strength and a unified foreign policy. In addition to standardizing health systems, education policies and curricula.

Among this, according to Hamad bin Jassim, is the establishment of basic strategic industries such as the pharmaceutical industry, military manufacturing and food security industries.

He continued: “If any union had these ingredients, it would be a true union with solid foundations. Thus, it will provide protection for both the young and the old.

Collective decisions

And he continued by saying: “The discussion among us was mainly about ways and procedures to preserve the rights of each member of the union through collective decisions, not unilaterally.”

He added, “In order to achieve this great goal, independent legal and judicial legislations, litigation procedures and fair laws must be achieved. It protects the rights of all members, and everyone is bound by the force of law. ”

And he added, “I hope that will happen one day, but before wishes, a great deal of confidence and clarity in visions is needed. In addition to legalizing all of this in binding frameworks, as we said previously.

GCC

This comes at the time of publication The Gulf States Institute in Washington An article by author Michael Stephens, in which he touched upon the reason for the survival of the Gulf Cooperation Council. In spite of the crises that hit the Gulf states recently.

The writer said that the Gulf Cooperation Council summit held last January in the Saudi city of Al-Ula marked the end of a deep disagreement between Qatar and its neighbors. Although the split at times seemed to be too acute to reconcile, yet the disagreement was overcome just as quickly as it started. None of the major problems between the two sides are taken seriously.

At noon, the Cooperation Council became unified, but!

The Gulf Cooperation Council became a “united” phenomenon once again, amid the support and praise of the Gulf media for the stances of the “sister countries”. But the truth is that the Gulf Cooperation Council is far from being united, and it is difficult to know the future awaiting the organization.

It may be premature to ask such questions; The heat of recent disagreements may need more time to subside before discussions begin. About the Gulf Cooperation Council and its role in the world. But the biggest problem has yet to be addressed; Since its inception, the Council has struggled to define a role for itself in regional or global affairs.

What does the Gulf Cooperation Council mean?

In fact – as the writer says – the Cooperation Council is struggling to determine what it is in the first place, so is it a security alliance of like-minded countries like NATO? Or is it an economic and cultural powerhouse like the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)? Or is it a political and economic bloc like the European Union? The best answer to all of these questions is “No, not exactly,” but it could be, if Member States wanted it.

The Gulf Cooperation Council is a loose conglomerate that focuses on a range of social, political, economic and security issues of concern to the six countries involved. In terms of cultural, social and geographical ties, these countries cooperate at times and compete at other times.

In times of cooperation, the council is relatively effective as huge financial resources can be mobilized to meet common challenges. But when the Gulf states are in conflict or competition, the Gulf Cooperation Council is reduced to an arena of discussion without action, and is weaker than the sum of its parts.

Established to counter the threat of Iran

And given that the Gulf Cooperation Council was designed primarily to counter the threat of Iran, with the support of US military and political might. There has always been a strong external component to the Majlis, and this may be the main cause of the muddled identity. Member states knew what to oppose, but nobody really knew what to do.

The shock of the Arab Spring

The Gulf Cooperation Council was never designed to deal with mass internal opposition in the Arab world of the kind that arose in 2011. Because of the collective failings of decades-old regimes that have stagnated political and economically.

In the wake of the Arab Spring uprisings, Gulf states (especially Saudi Arabia and the UAE) complained to the United States for not doing enough to preserve the old regional order. The decline in the US commitment to the region has accelerated the fragmentation of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE sought to fill the void left by Washington as the regional order began to transform significantly.

The three countries have interpreted stability in completely different ways, in a way that lacks any common vision of what it should be. The region and its political system and as a result, some of these countries supported militias and counter-revolutions and opposed interests. Each other throughout the Middle East and North Africa. According to the translation of “The New Gulf.”

Without a unified vision, identity, or security mission (other than what comes with influence from outside), the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council chose. All have different paths to deal with the violent social and political unrest that has spread across the region. Over the past ten years, the main division related to the disagreement between Qatar and its neighbors has centered on this point.
