CAIRO - 28 May 2019: Three Arab, Gulf and Islamic summits will be held in Mecca within the coming four days in a watershed stage in view of Iran's threats.
Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud called for Gulf and Arab summits in Mecca on May 30 and this comes in conjunction with the 14th summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
The talks are expected to tackle key issues, topped by the Iranian threats, the Palestinian cause, the conditions in Libya, Sudan and Algeria and countering terrorism in Yemen and Syria.
Egypt has stressed its deeply-rooted ties with Saudi Arabia and expressed solidarity with it in the face of any attempt seeking to destabilize the kingdom.
Egypt has also accentuated the importance of security and strategic coordination in the face of the Iranian threats on the back of an attack on ships in the territorial waters of the United Arab Emirates and the Iran-backed Houthi militias’ drone attack on two oil pumping stations in the kingdom.
