Chairing an emergency session of the GCC Supreme Council in Mecca, King Salman reiterated that “the Iranian regime's support for terrorism over four decades and threat to security and stability in order to expand its influence and hegemony are an act rejected by international norms and conventions”. “The lack of a deterrent and firm stance to confront the subversive activities of the Iranian regime in the region”, King Salman asserted, “has led the Iranian regime to continue and escalate these activities as we see today”. He demanded “the international community to shoulder its responsibilities towards the threat posed by Iranian practices”. In separate remarks to the Arab League, King Salman posited that “the hand of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will always be extended for cooperation and dialogue … to enhance development and prosperity and achieve lasting peace for the countries and peoples of the region, including the Iranian people”.
