Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The labels "Arab states of the Persian Gulf" or "Persian Gulf states" or "Gulf Arab states" or "Arab Gulf states" or "Persian Gulf Arab states," are usually reserved for the six Arab monarchical states joined since 1981 in the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, or Gulf Cooperation Council: Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the sultanate of Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

Yemen similarly is not a member of the GCC, although it has been admitted to several GCC bodies
