CAIRO – 19 November 2017: Ahmed Aboul Gheit, secretary general of the League of Arab States, during the Arab League's ad hoc meeting Sunday, called on the U.N.

Security Council to prevent Iran’s action, which pushes the region towards an abyss, especially that Iran adopts sectarian policies and is using the nuclear deal to bully countries.

Aboul Gheit noted that Iran has provoked conflicts and incited Shiite communities in many Arab countries.

“Iran has launched 60 ballistic missiles on Saudi Arabia, violating the Security Council resolutions on the non-arming of militias,” he added.

He noted that all attempts to establish good neighborly relations with Iran have failed, confirming that the world should take an action against the attacks on Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile.

The Arab foreign ministers issued a statement at the end of the meeting, in which they condemned the Iranian regimes’ supply of missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen, who in turn have used the weapons against Saudi Arabia, according to Sky News.

The Arab ministers affirmed their solidarity with the measures Saudi Arabia took to protect its national security.

They warned Iran not to interfere in the internal affairs of the region and stressed that Tehran should halt its support for Houthi rebels in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Iran should relent in its provocation of unrest in Bahrain and should adhere to the good neighbor policy, the statement read.

The Arab ministers called on Arab countries in the United Nations to make the necessary contacts to arrange an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council in order to discuss Iranian threats to the region.
