A number of issues relating to the setting up of the AGCC Union and the latest developments in the Arab region were discussed in the meetings. Other topics discussed include the blasphemous film on Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him), nuclear armament and the situation in Syria. They underlined the need to provide all kinds of support to the Syrian people, and boost cooperation between the GCC and the EU to solve the Syrian crisis. They also discussed human rights, as it was confirmed that the AGCC countries are committed to boost and protect human rights according to the international agreements they had signed with regional and international organisations. The meeting praised the prominent role played by the AGCC women in upgrading their societies and the achievements made in all domains.

The two parties underscored the peaceful use of nuclear energy and touched upon the peace process in Israel and resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
