RIYADH - The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is considering requests from Morocco and Jordan to join the Gulf Arab political bloc, the secretary general said in a news conference on Tuesday in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

Abdullatif al-Zayani said GCC foreign ministers would hold talks with the foreign ministers of both countries to "complete required procedures," but it was unclear what kind of membership they were considering for the two Arab, non-Gulf countries.
