Saudi Arabia requests urgent Arab League meeting over Iran: Egypt media
CAIRO: Saudi Arabia has called for an urgent meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo next week to discuss Iran’s intervention in the region, an official league source told Egypt’s MENA state news agency on Sunday.
The call came after the resignation of Lebanon’s prime minister pushed Beirut back into the center of a rivalry between kingdom Saudi Arabia and Iran and heightened regional tensions.
