Tensions have mounted between Saudi Arabia and Iran since November 4, when Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, a long-time Saudi ally, announced a surprise resignation, accusing Tehran and its allied Lebanese Hezbollah movement of destabilizing his and other Arab countries.
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".
Allies of Hizbollah, the Iran-backed militant group, which has members in Lebanon's government, appeared to defend the organisation after it was roundly condemned at an Arab League meeting on Monday.
The foreign ministers said Arab telecommunications satellites would ban Iranian-financed television stations, which they claim provoke sectarian and ethnic tensions and pose a threat to security.
He cited a ballistic missile fired by Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen earlier this month that was intercepted near the Saudi capital, Riyadh, as an example of how far Iran has gone with its aggressive policy in the region.
Hezbollah is a partner to Lebanon's coalition government.
"Showing leniency toward Iran will not leave any Arab capital safe from those ballistic missiles", he said.
Some of the threats that Jubeir mentioned include the Iranian threat to Arab national security, the fights against terrorism, the Syrian crisis, Libya, Yemen's stability, internal development, implementing Vision 2030 in Saudi Arabia and reform.
Saudi Arabia, he added, will not stand idly by in the face of Iran's "blatant aggression".
Both Iraq and Lebanon were represented at the meeting by senior diplomats, not their foreign ministers. The draft also blamed the Shiite group of supporting "terrorist groups" across the region and supplying them with weapons, including ballistic missiles.
"The Iranian threats have gone beyond all limits and are pushing the region toward a unsafe precipice", Abul Gheit added.
"This morning, a decision was taken that Lebanon would be presented by Antoine Azzam, the permanent representative to the Arab League", the source said.
Saudi Minister for Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan has warned the Lebanese they must choose "either peace, or to live within the political fold of Hezbollah".
"We want to hold everyone responsible", Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said during the deliberations. The Syrian government, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, was replaced by the pro-rebel Syrian National Coalition in the Arab League in 2013, but the Syrian seat was again vacated in 2014.
