Gulf armies ready for possibility of US-Iran war: Saudi


In reply to a reporter’s question on the preparedness of GCC states in the event of such a conflict, Abdul Rahman bin Abdul Aziz said: "This subject is under constant study between defence ministers as the countries of the Gulf have to be always ready for any emergency."


His comments came after a meeting of GCC foreign and defence ministers in Riyadh to discuss growing tensions in the region over Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.


Tehran vehemently denies US accusations that it is secretly developing an atomic bomb, and insists that its nuclear project is for peaceful purposes.


The pro-US GCC consists of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
