Presentation and competencies
 

The Delegation for relations with the Arab Peninsula is responsible for maintaining relations between Parliament and the countries of the Peninsula (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
 
The delegation was created in 1979, the year of the first direct elections to the European Parliament, and its work represents an expression of keen interest in the democratisation process in the region, particularly with those states which possess functioning parliamentary institutions. The delegation's missions also make it possible to highlight Parliament’s priorities, particularly in the field of human rights.
 
In addition, the delegation monitors closely the negotiations towards the signature of a free trade agreement between the EU and the GCC, which is intended to provide a new institutional framework for commercial and political relations between the two parties.
