"Any leniency in dealing with their policies would only encourage them more, so we must stand together", the Saudi Foreign Minister added.
In a statement attributed to Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ahmed Mahjoub, Baghdad said Monday the parts of the Arab League resolution that referred to Hezbollah as a terrorist organization were "inconsistent with the clear and absolute Iraqi position in defining terrorism realistically and accurately". 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.
In what is perhaps the only concrete measure, the ministers said Arab telecommunications satellites would ban Iranian-financed television stations for what they said was their fomenting of sectarian and ethnic tensions and because they posed a threat to Arab security.
Last week, the Israeli military chief, Lieutenant General Gadi Eizenkot, told an Arabic language online newspaper that Israel was ready to share "intelligence information" with Saudi Arabia, saying their countries had a common interest in standing up to Iran.
On Sunday Arab League members adopted a resolution saying they would hold the "terrorist Lebanese Hezbollah. responsible for supporting terrorism and terrorist organisations in Arab countries, with modern weapons and ballistic missiles".
Israeli minister reveals contacts with Saudi Arabia 'to curb Iran'
Sunni Muslim Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran have had no diplomatic ties since January 2016 and back opposing sides in several regional conflicts, including the wars in Yemen and Syria, as well as the Lebanese issue.
This latest flare up between Saudi Arabia and Iran was sparked by a November 4 incident in which Iranian-supported Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a ballistic missile at Riyadh's worldwide airport. Majority Shias were denied to organise religious meetings commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Hussein in the month of Muharram recently. Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said Iran's supply of rockets to Houthi militias was an act of "direct military aggression". Lebanon's foreign minister, Gibran Bassil, did not attend, and the Lebanese representative at the meeting expressed reservations over the final communique.
He stressed that "no one is accusing the Lebanese government of terrorism". A third source familiar with the situation said Saudi Arabia was controlling and limiting his movement. Both countries have recently announced about achieving major successes in their fight against terrorist groups with Wahabi ideology. Syria and Iraq have been alleging these countries for their hand-in-glove role in spreading terrorism in the region.
He further says, "The Arab world is divided and a lot of countries convened to Cairo today don't see eye to eye with Saudi Arabia on its ways and means or how it plans to confront Iran in the region".
Saudi Arabia, added Al-Jubeir, will not stand idly by in the face of Iran's "blatant aggression".
