Iran Accuses Saudi Arabia of Pushing for War
The foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, and Bahrain also held a separate meeting ahead of the main session to discuss a unified stance against Iran.
Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told the foreign ministers of the region that his country "will not stand by and will not hesitate to defend its security" in the face of Iranian "aggression".
"Iran s biggest arm in the region at the moment is the terrorist Hezbollah arm", Sheikh Khalid charged.
The draft appears to be in synch with Saudi Arabia's recent hardening of its rhetoric against Iran after the Iran-allied Shiite rebels in Yemen, known as Houthis, fired a ballistic missile that was intercepted near Riyadh earlier this month.
Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates approved the Saudi request, which was also approved by Djibouti, the current chair of the pan-Arab bloc, according to a memorandum seen by AFP on Sunday.
Led by an increasingly militant Saudi Arabia, most of the Arab League condemned actions taken in the region by Iran and its Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, but the three countries most affected by the war against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) did not sign on.
Some of the threats he mentioned include the Iranian threat to Arab national security, the fight against terrorism, the Syrian crisis, Libya, yemen's stability, internal development and implementation of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman vision 2030 in Saudi Arabia.
Earlier, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, the head of the Arab League, which comprises 22 Sunni-dominated states in the Middle East and North Africa, made similar remarks, accusing Iran of fomenting sectarianism, and developing potentially destabilizing missile technology. Hariri cited Iran and Hezballah for meddling in regional affairs and expressed fear of a plot to assassinate him.
"What Iran is doing against some Arab countries calls for taking more than one measure to stop these violations, interferences and threats, which are carried out through many various means", Hossam Zaki, Arab League Assistant Secretary, told Asharq al Awsat newspaper in an interview.
The resolution came amid soaring tensions between regional arch-rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran, Shia Hezbollah's backer. He is now cooling his heels in Paris, a journey connived by Saudi and French administrations. He alleged, "Iranian threats have gone beyond all limits and pushed the region into a risky abyss".
The Cairo meeting was not attended by Lebanese foreign minister Gerban Basil.
In statements posted on Twitter, Aoun said Lebanon could not be held "responsible" for regional conflicts.
