Arab leaders gathered in Saudi Arabia to defend their interests against any threat following attacks on Gulf oil assets this month on Thursday.
Riyadh sent a strong message to Iran.
The summit leaders said Saudi King Salman is determined to defend Saudi and Arab interests amid increasing tensions between the US and Iran.
They said Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) carried out attacks on four tankers and Saudi ships off Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, and drone strikes on oil pumping stations in the kingdom and that the attacks must be addressed with strength and firmness.
They also discussed how to avoid a war.
They said it’s clear that Iran is behind the Fujairah attack, on oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
Riyadh accused Tehran of ordering the drone strikes, which were claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group.
Tehran denies any involvement in the attacks.
The regional powers Saudi Arab and the United Arab Emirates have said they want to avoid war.
