Riyadh failed to rally anti-Iran support in Arab League summit: Iran


Tehran has slammed the Saudi regime for pushing ahead with its “divisive policies” in a recent Arab League summit, saying the outcome of the meeting showed Riyadh has failed to muster support against Iran.

“A statement issued separately by a four-way committee of the Arab League against our country on the sidelines of the recent summit in Mauritania shows the failure of the Saudis in building consensus,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Thursday, Press TV reported.

“Foreign Ministry closely monitored all the developments in this summit, the documents that were issued as well as the actions of certain countries” during the Mauritania meeting, Qassemi added.

The latest Arab League summit opened in Mauritania’s capital, Nouakchott, on Friday, with only a handful of the 22-nation organization in attendance.

Qassemi further warned the “few countries” that continue to back Saudi Arabia’s “divisive policies,” stressing that such support “would lead nowhere in the future, except that these countries will have a share in [Riyadh’s] responsibility for crimes such as child killings and terror support.”

The official further slammed the Saudi regime for forcing other states into supporting its hostile approach in Yemen, Syria and Bahrain.
