Arab FMs to hold emergency meeting on Iranian interference in Arab countries

CAIRO, Nov 12 (KUNA) -- Responding to a Saudi request, the Council of the Arab League will hold an emergency meeting, at Foreign Ministers' level, next Sunday to discuss "how to deal with Iran's interference" in the Arab countries and its attempts to undermine Arab security and peace.
This came after conducting consultations between the League's Secretariat and Djibouti, the current president, an Arab diplomatic source told KUNA in a statement.
The source said Saudi Arabia on Sunday officially called for holding an extraordinary meeting to focus on "violations committed by Iran in the Arab region that undermine security and peace not only in this region but also in the entire world." The scheduled meeting will also discuss the ballistic missile fired by Houthis in Yemen against Riyadh on November 4, it noted.
It pointed out that the ministerial meeting will further discuss the terrorist act against Bahrain that blew up an oil pipeline last Friday, adding that Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait supported the Saudi request. (end) mfm.rg.hm
