3:50 am
the saudis called on the muslim nations to confront iran with what they called force and fungus is and it's been particularly tense in the region with the u.s. deploying troops and warships to the gulf. simmons now reports the 1st of 3 major gatherings of leaders one objective to find a way of reducing tension in the middle east it's difficult at a time when divisions within the region run deep made worse by the battle of rhetoric between the united states and iran the host for these talks saudi arabia made its position clear. we emphasize the need to exert more if it's to combat the subversive activities of extremist terrorist groups they must be addressed with extreme and firmness. a reference there to damage to 4 vessels including 2 saudi all tankers off the coast of the united arab emirates earlier this month and drone

attacks on saudi oil installations 2 days later the saudis had accused iran of ordering the drone attack which was claimed by new things in yemen in the run up to these talks by foreign ministers from the organization of islamic cooperation john bolton the u.s. national security advisor visiting the u.s. he said naval mines almost certainly from iran we used to attack shipping but he didn't refer to any evidence adding who else would you think is doing it somebody from nepal iran's foreign ministry dismissed bolton's remarks as a ludicrous claim and the supreme leader ayatollah ali how many reasserted we will not negotiate with america because negotiation has no benefit and carries harm. before the talking started in jeddah it emerged that katsav prime minister abdullah bin nasa bin khalifa funny will attend g.c.c. and arab league sessions on thursday it will be cattles 1st high level contacts

3:53 am
a 1st step towards repro small is unclear but the immediate effect of cattle is involvement here could result in a broader debate over relations with iran andrew simmons al-jazeera. so let's take a closer look at the relationship between iran and some of the countries in the region since the g.c.c. crisis began and 2017 iran has pursued direct relations with iran kuwait and cattle the countries imposing their blockade on cattle including saudi arabia the u.a.e. and bahrain have all spoken out against iran bahrain accuses it of supporting its shia opposition and fueling unrest while saudi arabia and the u.a.e. say iran is a major regional threat leading the coalition against iranian backed rebels in yemen israel has called iran its number one enemy and condemns it support of the syrian government and lebanon based hezbollah the u.s. and israel both accuse iran of supplying weapons to the group. has covered
3:54 am
this story extensively and joins me now from doha so a lot about iran a lot of this centers on iran doesn't it hashim and there are no shortages of challenges in the region tell us 1st what saudi arabia will be wanting to accomplish from these meetings. well basically money on those concerns dates back to many years ago when the saudis have been saying that iran continues to use proxies to destabilize the region and promote a radical shia ideology in the middle east now saying that there needs to be a united stance against iran and this explains why they are using mecca as a venue for the talks being islam's holiest site of the month of ramadan being islam's holiest month they want to see it are presented to leaders from all the muslim world's present more than a 1600000000 people united with one stance against iran now is it likely to put
3:55 am
more pressure on iran it remains to be seen because the semblance of unity we're going to see tonight from the meeting in. hides and the need some cracks visible crocks huge divisions between some of the key players in those blogs about how to move forward and how to tackle iran there is a general sentiment at this particular moment that the only way to engage with the iranians should be through diplomatic means should be through direct talks between the g.c.c. the arab world and with the iranians and that further isolating the iranians could just further destabilize the region and lead to a full blown military confrontation it remains to be seen with the saudis will be able to muster the quorum and have everyone on board to have to remember they 2016 i was in riyadh where the saudis managed. to bring all the muslim and arab leaders for a meeting with president donald trump today that political clout assad has enjoyed
3:56 am
for decades seems to be suffering a major dent right and one thing we've seen with iran is they're only see they don't deal with the g.c.c. as a bloc they tend to pursue bilateral relations with individual countries be it oman or kuwait or indeed catherine they've managed to capitalize on recent tensions within the bloc so could all this actually backfire if they fail to come up with some sort of united position of consensus what exactly i mean the only with this whole initiative by the saudis of further contain iran is the moment when the saudis did every want to be on board the start of the located 2017 qatar undermining the decision which is widely see in this part of the world as one of the most inefficient organizations in the world completely disconnected from reality played 0 role in trying to contain the quizes in the g.c.c. let alone trying to cope with something which is bigger
3:57 am
a mammoth like dealing with iran when qatar was facing the blockade the iranians allowed the qatari. to flow through its space you see the irony here the iranians have been building very strong relations with other countries like the kuwaitis like there are many is wish is that the g.c.c. this particular moment will. not be able to come up with a strong robust unified stance against iran thank you very much in doha thank you hashem and with me in the studio now is al jazeera senior political analyst marwan bashara marwan that the prospect of these summits leading to any resolution of the gulf crisis is very premature obviously the blockade is still in place but what is the interaction likely to be like between cateye and its neighbors. you know it remains to be seen but the fact that qatar accepted this invitation not the
3:58 am
previous ones means that there's something is going on for it to actually take the step go to saudi arabia the block of the country in the hope i would think of having some biological meetings whereby some 1st steps are taken by especially saudi arabia to lift the aerial blockade and to start taking some steps in order to pave the way towards more positive atmosphere this is especially the case because quote that understands as everyone else does that after 2 years of the blockade it basically failed and to continue it would be a sign of insanity and hence saudi arabia is basically you know concluding that maybe it is time to at least deescalate with a partner within the g.c.c. and that is good. but so i mean one thing i suppose we haven't seen despite cancer building relationships elsewhere and its resilience in the face of this blockade it
3:59 am
it hasn't prompted any fundamental change in the saudi policy or strategy has it yet this exactly why i would be very careful to talk about the future because the question is not going to be let's lift the blockade and continue with business as usual there is no more business as usual and this is not just the question of the gulf i mean the issues were of the day right because i think a question of just to see the arab league and the islamic conference that once. for the last 40 years or 50 years the issue is is it palestine or iran it's been mostly palestine but every time as of recently we start talking about iran it was at the expense of palestine when in fact talking about iran and palestine should come in the same breath meaning having iran join the war and the islamic world to put pressure on the occupying power israel in order to withdraw from palestine so actually having iran and palestine should have been complimentary instead it is
4:00 am
contradictory why because of some invisible hand which which is really dividing the area in a way is whereby we are we are to deemphasize israeli occupation because of some iranian threats when in fact the only has to be some dialogue with the areas and perhaps even with the israelis but certainly projecting all sorts of leverage from the arab persian turkish even european circles in order to end the 50 year occupation of palestine but if anything that seems unlikely because we've seen a real shake up in the. geopolitical order in the region i mean instead of the g.c.c. functioning as a bloc you had this overarching saudi and iran alliance with israeli and u.s. involvement there and then you have a country like council which is a founding member of the g.c.c. forging relationships.
