Saudi Arabia has described the threat from Iran as the main challenge facing Arabs.

During the Arab foreign ministers' meeting on Friday, Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf said what Iran practices through its blatant interference in Arab affairs, and its militias is one of the most dangerous forms of terrorism and extremism, which requires cooperation from us to confront.

Moreover, Assaf urged the Arabs to work on stopping Iran’s ballistic missile program, adding that Tehran was supplying Houthi militias in Yemen with rockets to attack Saudi cities.

Assaf also reiterated the Saudi support for Syria’s territorial integrity, calling for a political solution to end the civil war based on dialogue between opposition and the government.
