Saudi King calls Gulf, Arab summits in Mecca on May 30

Saudi King Salman has called for Gulf and Arab summits in Mecca on May 30 to discuss recent attacks in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“The attack on ships in the territorial waters of the United Arab Emirates and the terrorist-backed Iran-backed Houthi militias’ attack on two oil pumping stations in the Kingdom. This has serious implications for regional and international peace and security and for the supply and stability of world oil markets,” the foreign ministry said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

King Salman’s call for the Gulf and Arab summits comes in conjunction with the 14th summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
