Organization Created on May 25, 1981, the Council is comprised of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It should be noted that not all of countries neighboring the Persian Gulf are members of the council. Specifically, Iran (Persia) and Iraq are not members.

The common term “Persian Gulf” is not used in the name of the organization, as the governments of these Arab countries since the 1960s refer to the Persian Gulf as the “Arabian Gulf”
