Tehran and its sorrounding

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi has denounced Saudi King Salman’s accusations of Tehran meddling in the region.

Iran has rejected what it calls “baseless” accusations made at an Arab summit, saying Saudi Arabia had joined the United States and Israel in a “hopeless” effort to mobilise regional opinion against Tehran.

Saudi Arabia king told an emergency Arab summit that decisive action was needed to stop Iranian “escalations” in the region following attacks on oil assets in the Gulf, as American officials said a US military deployment had deterred Tehran.

The comments by King Salman Abdul Aziz came as Saudi Arabia hosted in Mecca emergency meetings of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) and the Arab League to counter what it said was Iran’s growing influence.
