Nasrallah heaped criticism on Arab foreign ministers who accused his group of terrorism at an emergency Arab League meeting convened at the behest of Saudi Arabia on Sunday.
In a statement attributed to Iraqi Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ahmed Mahjoub, Baghdad said Monday the parts of the Arab League resolution that referred to Hezbollah as a terrorist organization were "inconsistent with the clear and absolute Iraqi position in defining terrorism realistically and accurately". He said that Arab League was not asking the Security Council to meet, but they were "just briefing the council and maybe the next stage would be for us to meet and call for a Security Council meeting and submit a draft Arab resolution [against Iran]". Arab foreign ministers gathered at Saudi Arabia's request for an extraordinary meeting to discuss alleged "violations" committed by Iran in the region, but the foreign ministers of Lebanon, Iraq and Syria were not in attendance.
The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Monday his Iran-backed group had not sent any weapons to Yemen and categorically denied that it was behind the firing of a ballistic missile that was launched at Riyadh from territory held by Yemeni Houthi rebels.

"Showing leniency toward Iran will not leave any Arab capital safe from those ballistic missiles", he said.
The Saudi Foreign Minister said his country was targeted by a total of 80 ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Iranian-backed Shiite militia since the Kingdom in 2015 led a coalition to fight them alongside the internationally recognized government there.Читайте также: Apple Officially Delays HomePod Launch Until 2018
Zarif added that Iran was also working towards a truce in Syria, while the Saudis accused Tehran of destabilizing the region and escalating the crisis.
Both Iraq and Lebanon were represented at the meeting by senior diplomats, not their foreign ministers.

The draft appears to be in sync with Saudi Arabia's strong stance against Iran since the Houthis fired a missile on November 4. Israel had also admitted providing medical support to the "civilians" injured in Syria.
"That doesn't mean they agree to the escalation of Iranian interference in various Arab countries, but paradoxically it was the incompetence and the division among those Arab countries that was the main factor why Iran is able to expand its influence in the region", added Bishara.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
