  • Hexagon is a strange polygon, which closely resemble a circle. Six is also a number which we could manage. Six would be the maximum number which we could pursue consensus.
  • Here the comparison of the six countries of GCC (Gulf Corporation Council); i.e., Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatal, UAE, and Oman.
  • All these countries are very important for Japan, which imports great amount of oil and natural gas, and exports various machineries to these areas.

  • 六角形は不思議な多角形である。それは円を近似している。6はまた合意を得るためには最大の数かもしれない。
  • 湾岸協力会議を構成する6ヶ国の比較である。即ち、サウジアラビア、クウェート、バハレーン、カタール、アラブ首長国連邦、オマーンである。
  • これらの国々は日本にとって非常に重要である。石油や天然ガスを大量に輸入し、さまざまな機械などを輸出する相手国だからである。
