Discussions at the GCC already underway for Egypt, Jordan and Morocco to join the regional grouping


The Gulf Cooperation Council is negotiating the possibility of Egypt joining the council as an active member with both Jordon and Morocco, according to sources at Al-Watani magazine in Kuwaiti.

The same sources say Egyptian officials have shown initial approval to the idea.
