Video: Will Saudi Arabia Win Support against Iran?

From Al Jazeera. Any opinions expressed are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iran Business News.

When the Arab League met in an emergency session on Sunday tension with Iran topped the agenda.

Saudi officials accused Iran of interfering in Arab affairs and undermining regional security.

A day earlier, the Gulf countries had expressed full solidarity with Saudi Arabia, and condemned the attacks on the Saudi embassy in Tehran.

The Gulf leaders also said that antagonistic rhetoric from the Iranian government had directly caused those attacks.

Riyadh warned that Gulf countries could take additional measures in response to Iranian moves in the region.

Is this support enough? And how far is Saudi Arabia able to go in its row with Iran?
