Arabs prepare for Iran Security Council face-off

Pakistan Army Chief's Visit To Iran Why It Upsets India And Saudi Arabia

Led by an increasingly militant Saudi Arabia, most of the Arab League condemned actions taken in the region by Iran and its Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, but the three countries most affected by the war against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) did not sign on.

"We want to hold everyone responsible", Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said during the deliberations.

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 asked Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo on Sunday to condemn what Riyadh and its allies see as Iran's meddling in Arab affairs and its alleged support for militias in the region, according to Arab diplomats.

The League ministers affirmed Riyadh´s right to defend its territory and said they would support all legitimate procedures it might take "against these Iranian violations".

Pakistan Army Chief's Visit To Iran Why It Upsets India And Saudi Arabia

While addressing the Arab foreign ministers Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said that they will raise the matter with UN Security Council and other worldwide organizations.

"Showing leniency toward Iran will not leave any Arab capital safe from those ballistic missiles", he said, in reference to the failed missile attack on Riyadh from Yemen earlier this month, which the Saudis believe was ordered by Tehran.

Riyadh and Tehran have for decades stood on opposing sides of conflicts in the Middle East, including Yemen and Syria - where Iran-backed Hizbollah militiamen are fighting alongside forces loyal to Syrian president Bashar Al Assad.

After French intervention, Hariri flew to France and met French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Saturday.

He even went on saying that missile which was sacked by Houthis towards Riyadh was "Iranian made" and called is as an "unacceptable Iranian message".

Despite being Sunni, Hamas has always been seen as an ally of Iran.

The meeting was chaired by Djibouti's Foreign Minister and current chairman of the Arab Council of Foreign Ministers, Mahmoud Ali Yusuf, at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo and was attended by 15 ministers and six ministerial representatives.

Mr Aoun said he would not accept Mr Hariri's resignation until it is delivered in person amid calls for his speedy return.

While the Cairo meeting produced a display of unity, Saudi Arabia was largely preaching to the choir.

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