The summit opened in the eastern Saudi city of Dhahran as tensions with Iran and wars in Syria and Yemen threaten stability across the region.

The AL chief also slammed Iran for its support for the Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, saying the Arab states should unite with Saudi Arabia against Iran.

There was little mention of Syria, whose president Bashar al Assad was not invited to the summit. Al-Qayid urged Arab leaders to take "stern and decisive action" to resolve the conflict once and for all.

Sixteen Arab leaders are attending the summit, which comes one day after the U.S., France and Britain launched a joint airstrike in Syria in the wake of a suspected chemical attack by regime forces.

"The Saudis are going to push for a much harsher stance on Iran - not necessarily on the nuclear dossier per se, but on Iranian influence in the Arab countries, particularly Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen", said Karim Bitar of the Paris-based Institute of worldwide and Strategic Affairs.

Saudi Arabia and its Arab and non-Arab allies believe that Lebanon and Iraq are Iran's backyard and their sovereignty is violated by the Islamic Republic.
