Abstract

    The international relations between the Gulf Cooperation Council states on the one hand and many African countries on the other can be described as newly established relations and return from its beginnings to the decades that have arisen or have become independent of both countries. One pattern of nature or form, but vary from state to state according to the circumstances and conditions of this country or that.


    Despite the fact that Gulf-African relations are not different from other international relations in terms of their impact on a range of political, economic, security, social and moral factors negatively and positively, they differ from others because these relations are more influenced by the political factors on the part of the Gulf countries and the desire to achieve Economic interests on the part of African countries, in addition to the fact that humanitarian aid and charitable organizations had an influential side in the relations between the two parties.
