<h1><em>Analysis and commentary on the Gulf Co-operation Council region</em></h1>
The aim of this Whitehall Paper is to study the changing capabilities of the Gulf’s military forces and to assess what impact force building plans may have on the regional military balance.
It is only comparatively recently that the present configuration of independent states in the Gulf was established. This helps to explain the sensitivities of them all to the issue of external intervention in the area.
