Saudi, Bahrain Target Iran At Arab League Meeting

Saudi, Bahrain Target Iran At Arab League Meeting

Notably, the Lebanese Foreign Minister Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil skipped the meeting, and reports in the local media suggested that the country did not want to be made a prominent part of the Arab League declaration.

"The Lebanese Republic, in spite of our relations with it as a brotherly Arab nation.is under the total control of this terrorist party", Sheikh Khalid said.

Sunni Muslim powerhouse Saudi Arabia and Iran, the predominant Shia power, have for decades stood on opposing sides of conflicts in the Middle East including in Syria and Yemen. "We are willing to exchange information with moderate Arab countries, including intelligence information, in order to deal with Iran".

They condemned what they described as Iran's constant meddling in Arab affairs.

On November 10, a panel appointed by the UN Security Council sent a confidential letter to diplomats, which states that it has seen no proof of Saudi Arabia's claims that Iran was responsible for the recent missile attack by the Yemeni Houthi rebels targeting Riyadh, the US-based investigative website The Intercept reported on Friday.

Arab foreign ministers are holding an emergency meeting at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, following Saudi Arabia's request to discuss Iran's "violations" and its role in "undermining Arab security and peace".

"The ballistic missile launched on my country's capital reflects the repeated Iranian attacks against the kingdom, which witnessed the launch of 80 Iranian ballistic missiles through its Houthi agent in Yemen, which was exposed to various cities in the Kingdom, and did not care about the Muslims' Qiblah by launching three ballistic missiles in a blatant attack on Islamic sanctity and a provocation to the feelings of Muslims around the world".




The ministers, according to the final statement, said they supported any action to be taken by Saudi Arabia to protect its national security, within the boundaries of worldwide legitimacy.

Speaking before Al-Jubeir at the 20-minute session broadcast live, Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit was just as critical of Iran as the Saudi minister.

Bahrain has also blamed Iran for the pipeline fire.

Last month, Saudi former intelligence chief Prince Turki bin Faisal shared a stage with ex-Israeli Mossad spy agency director Efraim Halevy at a debate on Iran in a NY synagogue.

A source close to Hariri said the Cairo meeting aimed to "continue the series of Arab and global consultations".

Iran-backed Hezbollah - which is dominant in Lebanon - is also a great enemy of Israel, with which it fought a war in 2006.
