U.S.-allied Gulf Arab states, led by top oil exporter Saudi Arabia, have cautiously welcomed the November 24 interim accord as a step towards curbing what they fear is a secret Iranian program to develop nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies. Addressing the start of a regular meeting of Gulf Arab interior ministers in Bahrain, host minister Sheikh Rashed bin Abdullah al-Khalifa said Gulf Arab states wanted to be certain that the accord "would not be at the expense of the security of any member of the (Gulf Cooperation) Council".
