(MENAFN - Arab Times) Two lawyers described a security pact signed by Gulf states as "contractual" that does not carry any obligatory intentions or breach the constitutions or laws of its signatories. The agreement, signed but not-yetfully ratified by the six states of the Gulf Cooperation Council - Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - is characterised by its "articulate and transparent language," Kuwait University professor of law Fayez Al-Dhifeeri said in an interview with Kuwaiti state television. Its general provisions and main principles do not whatsoever conflict with any of the Vienna conventions and it emphasises a "goodwill" nature, he underlined



The agreement is also "mindful of the laws and constitution of Kuwait as its application does not interfere with the laws of the land, and its application is currently left open for every nation to make its own interpretation." On the diplomatic scale, it represents a positive step towards forming union amongst the six neighbouring states, he added. For her part, legal advisor at the Kuwait Foreign Ministry Tahani Al- Nasser said that "the agreement places an infrastructure for cooperation amongst these nations, and is a contractual agreement. "It does not place any obligations on the state, but states that each nation shall cooperate with one another only if called upon," she added



The agreement also ensures the respect of national regulations of each country, which she said means that local laws - including personal confidentiality and personal rights granted by the constitution - would be considered ahead of the unilateral agreement. Kuwait, she said, has signed many similar agreements in the judicial, legal and security fields, which included similar procedures. She went on to stress that the agreement is not unfamiliar, and at the same time, is not unconditional as it is being subject to specific standards with the formation of a local committee that will revise it and discuss it as needed
