Arab League foreign ministers slam Iran's hostile acts

'Arrogant' Saudi Arabia fails to hurt Hezbollah with Hariri gambit, but won't stop trying

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told an Arab League meeting on Sunday that Riyadh will not stand idly by in the face of Iran's "aggression".

Arab foreign ministers have condemned Iran and its allied Lebanese Shi'ite Hizballah group during an extraordinary meeting in Cairo.

"Unfortunately countries like the Saudi regime are pursuing divisions and creating differences and because of this they don't see any results other than divisions", Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told Iranian state media earlier on November 19 on the sidelines of a meeting in Antalya with his Russian and Turkish counterparts about the Syria conflict.

On 4 November, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri resigned while in Riyadh over what he described as Iranian interference in his country and direct threats to his life.

Top US officials, including US President Donald Trump, have also blamed Iran for the Houthis' attack, with Envoy to the UN Nikky Haley calling for Tehran to be held accountable for a ballistic missile launched by Yemeni rebels targeting Saudi Arabia in July 2017, as it was allegedly an‎ Iranian Qiam.

A diplomatic source says Riyadh is seeking to adopt a condemnation of "Iran and Arab militias linked to this country".

Israel is prepared to "exchange intelligence information" with Saudi Arabia and "other moderate Arab countries", the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) chief of staff said.

"We have said it publicly that we will not accept the Iranian position in Syria in general, and especially their position west of the Damascus-Suwayda Road".

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil did not attend Sunday's meeting.

Iran-backed Hezbollah, which is dominant in Lebanon, is also a great enemy of Israel with which it fought a war in 2006. It will be represented by its representative to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam, it added. Rallying Arab diplomatic efforts against Iranian interference was an essential step to move the issue on to the global stage, he said.

In what is perhaps the only concrete measure, the ministers said Arab telecommunications satellites would ban Iranian-financed television stations for what they said was their fomenting of sectarian and ethnic tensions and because they posed a threat to Arab security.

Lebanon, where Hezbollah is a key member of a coalition government, and Iraq, a majority Shiite nation bound by close political and religious ties to Iran, stated their reservations about the harsher parts of the resolution, including one that branded Hezbollah a "terrorist" organization.

Saudi Arabia maintains that any relations with Israel hinge on Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war.
