MANAMA (Reuters) - The Gulf Arab region will remain a pillar of stability in the Middle East, Bahrain’s foreign minister said on Saturday.

Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa also told a security summit in Bahrain that a proposed regional security alliance bringing together the United States, Gulf allies, Egypt and Jordan would be “open to those who accept its principles”.
