These countries have a long history of economic and political cooperation, and they have established a common market, a customs union, and a monetary union. The GCC countries also work together on issues related to security, defense, and diplomacy.

There are several countries in the Arabian Peninsula that are not part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Some of these countries include:
Yemen is geographically located in the Arabia Peninsula but it’s not a member of GCC due to its political instability. Iraq and Iran are both neighboring countries, but they have not been invited to join the GCC. While Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, and Egypt are located in the broader Middle East region, but they are not in the Arabian Peninsula.
