The Saudi crown prince said, at the opening of the Gulf summit with Central Asian countries, “We congratulate the joint action plan between the Gulf countries and the Central Asian countries,” adding that “the challenges facing our world require unifying efforts to face them.”

The GCC countries and the Central Asian countries (Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) share common ties as Islamic countries, which are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and have common values and historical ties, as well as large oil and gas resources, which qualify them to play an influential role in global energy security, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
