Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud called on leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Arab countries to hold two emergency summits to discuss the repercussions of the attacks on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The Saudi foreign ministry said on Twitter that the two summits would be held on May 30 in Mecca.
The call comes amid rising tension in the Gulf region between the United States and Iran.
The United States has deployed warships and aircraft in the Gulf in recent days because of what it called “threats” of Iran.
“The invitation came from the keenness to consult and coordinate with the brotherly countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the League of Arab States in order to enhance security and stability in the region,” the official SPA news agency said.
