The member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are concerned with Egypt's attempts to strengthen ties with Iran, Kuwaiti newspaper al Kabas reported on Sunday.

According to the report, several Gulf states have contacted Egypt's ruling Supreme Military Council recently to discuss Egypt's position in the region following February's ouster of Hosni Mubarak.

The reported quoted sources from the Gulf nations as saying attempts have been made to invest in Egypt and help the country financially, but Cairo has continued to call for tightening of relations with Iran.
