An emergency requiring three consecutive summits in one location, it certainly sounds like something that needs to be addressed, and quickly.

And according to Saudi Arabia, the emergency is Iran.

The Kingdom gathered Arab leaders for meetings of the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Arab League, and the Organisation of Islamic Countries.

Riyadh said the international community must "use all means to stop Iran from interfering in other countries' affairs".

So, is there an emergency?

Or is it another power-play in the Gulf with the addition of a US military presence?
