Shaikh Tamim is the third Gulf Cooperation Council leader to visit the newly appointed King in the past few days.

The Saudi leader on Sunday received Kuwait’s Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahamd Al Jaber Al Sabah for talks that focused on the political situation in the region and the latest social and economic developments.
On Monday January 16th, King Salman received General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
Last week, Shaikh Tamim received Saudi Prince Mohammad Bin Nayef, in Doha, Qatar’s main city. According to official news agencies, the meeting reviewed the relationship between Qatar and Saudi Arabia and ways of enhancing them to create cross border synergies. The two leaders also discussed the regional and international situation and exchanged views on issues of common concern.

The summit was established by member countries to endorse an agreement that ironed out differences and defined a common approach to all issues of common interest.
