Saudi Arabia’s cabinet of ministers held a session on Tuesday chaired by King Salman in which they called for joint efforts in countering Iranian’s terror activities in the region.

At the session, the cabinet recalled the recent resolutions passed during the 150th ordinary session of the Arab League's Council and discussed follow-up points on the crisis with Iran and ways to address its interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries.

“The Cabinet stressed that terrorism being practiced by Iran through its blatant interference in Arab affairs and its support for terrorist militias is one of the most appalling manifestations of terrorism, which needs unification and cooperation to confront and deter its tools, reiterating that the Kingdom has made efforts to combat terrorism and has not hesitated to provide all kinds of support with cooperation of the international community to eradicate this plague,” a statement on Saudi Press Agency (SPA) read.

At the outset of the session, King Salman briefed the cabinet on the results of his meetings with President Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea and Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali after they signed the Jeddah Peace Agreement between their countries.
