The Arab League said on Saturday it was concerned about a rapid deterioration of Lebanese-Gulf relations after critical comments from a Lebanese minister about the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen.

In a statement quoting Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit, it appealed to Gulf countries “to reflect on the measures proposed to be taken…in order to avoid further negative effects on the collapsing Lebanese economy”.

“…Aboul Gheit expressed his deep concern and regret over the rapid deterioration in Lebanese-Gulf relations…,” the statement said. It added he was confident Lebanese President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister Najib Mikati would act quickly to ease the crisis.
