DUBAI - Gulf Arab countries will continue discussions on a possible union of six nations but any such plan will take time, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said on Monday.

"Leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have approved the call for a commission to continue studying in order to present final results (to a coming summit)," he told a news conference after a summit meeting. "The issue will take time... The aim is for all countries to join, not just two or three."

He also said no steps would be taken on a closer relationship between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
