Saudi king slams Iran blatant interference in regional affairs

Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Sunday slammed Iran's blatant interference in regional affairs as Arab leaders met in the kingdom for an annual gathering, AFP reported on Sunday.

 

Seventeen leaders from across the Arab world - minus Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - gathered in the eastern Saudi city of Dhahran for the summit, which this year comes as world powers face off over Syria and tensions rise between Riyadh and Tehran.

 

The meeting opened only 24 hours after a barrage of strikes launched by the United States, Britain and France hit targets they said were linked to chemical weapons development in Syria, which was suspended from the league seven years ago.
