Kingdom to join Asian Cooperation Dialogue

Saudi Arabia is joining the recently-created Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD), a forum for consolidating political will among Asian governments and offering opportunities to develop common approaches to issues of regional and international importance. Most of the Kingdom's neighbors - Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Iran - have already joined the forum, which currently comprises 25 countries and will eventually include all countries in Asia.
