Zarif: Saudi Destabilization Accusations against Iran "Irony"

Zarif: Saudi Destabilization Accusations against Iran

Some of the threats he mentioned include the Iranian threat to Arab national security, the fight against terrorism, the Syrian crisis, Libya, yemen's stability, internal development and implementation of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman vision 2030 in Saudi Arabia.

Both Iraq and Lebanon were represented at the meeting by senior diplomats, not their foreign ministers. As ISIS's self-proclaimed caliphate collapsed, Iran has taken an opportunity to establish closer ties with Baghdad, Beirut and Damascus.

The Lebanese envoy to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam, made carefully weighed comments at the meeting that reflected his country's delicate religious and ethnic balance.

The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Monday his Iran-backed group had not sent any weapons to Yemen and categorically denied that it was behind the firing of a ballistic missile that was launched at Riyadh from territory held by Yemeni Houthi rebels.

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

In a statement the party said it "rejects the description of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement as terrorist". Relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran have been rocky since the 1979 Iranian revolution.

Hariri announced his resignation as prime minister of Lebanon on November 4 from Riyadh on the Saudi-funded Al-Arabiya news network, accusing Iran of destabilizing Lebanon and the region. He is now cooling his heels in Paris, a journey connived by Saudi and French administrations. It is, however, the first time the Arab League has taken such a strong public stand against Hezbollah.

"Saudi Arabia has succeeded through pressure as well as extensive political and propagandistic hue and cry to have a statement that is full of lies and distortions be issued in the name of foreign ministers of the Arab League", Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Qassemi said Monday, according to Iran's semi-official Press TV.

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.

While IS no longer controls any urban hub in Iraq, its surviving fighters have regrouped in remote desert areas along the border with Syria and mopping up operations remain to be completed. The Syrian government, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, was replaced by the pro-rebel Syrian National Coalition in the Arab League in 2013, but the Syrian seat was again vacated in 2014.
