H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani has received a written message from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, inviting H.H. the Amir to attend the GCC emergency summit in Makkah Al Mukkramah, on May 30, reported Qatar News Agency (QNA).
The message was received by H.E. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, during a meeting with HE Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani in Doha yesterday.
Earlier this month, King Salman had invited Gulf leaders and Arab states to two emergency summits in Mecca on May 30 to discuss recent 'aggressions and their consequences' in the region, the Saudi Press Agency said.
Tensions have soared in the Gulf region following the drone attacks on oil installations in the kingdom and attacks on four vessels, including two Saudi oil tankers, off the coast of the UAE.
Saudi Arabia accused Iran of ordering the recent drone attacks on two oil pumping stations in the kingdom, claimed by Yemen's Houthi group. Iran denied it was behind the attacks and a senior Iranian military commander was quoted as saying his country was not looking for war.
