The Gulf Cooperation Council Saturday backed a Saudi decision to reexamine its relationship with Lebanon and halt $4 billion in security grants offered to equip the country's army and police.The statement comes a day after Saudi Arabia announced that it will halt two grants to the Lebanese Army and Internal Security Forces that amount to $4 billion in light of Lebanon's foreign policy that failed to endorse statements at separate meetings held in Cairo and Jeddah that accused Iran of supporting terrorism.Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates both expressed support for their Gulf partner's decision to stop Lebanon's military aid in statements Friday.
