VIDEO: Saudis walk out of Arab League meeting after Iraqi min.'s comments
TEHRAN, Mar. 12 (MNA) – The Saudi delegation at the Arab League stormed out of a Fri. meeting in Cairo after Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said Hezbollah preserves Arab dignity and “those who call them terrorists are terrorists themselves.”
The Arab League has labelled Hezbollah a 'terrorist group' at its foreign ministers’ meeting in Cairo on Friday, a decision that was refused by Iraq and Lebanon. The decision came after the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council officially added Hezbollah and all groups affiliated to its so-called list of 'terrorist' organizations on March 2. Responding to the act, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said the reason behind it was the will of Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states’ regimes to normalize relations with Israel.
