MOSCOW(Sputnik) — The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) said Tuesday it would hold an extraordinary ministerial meeting in Riyadh on Saturday to discuss tensions with Iran.

"Foreign ministers of the GCC States will hold an extraordinary meeting in Riyadh on Saturday…to discuss the issues connected with the attack on the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran and the Saudi consulate in the Iranian city of Mashhad," the GCC said in a statement released to media.

A diplomatic row erupted late Sunday after Riyadh broke off ties with Tehran over attacks on Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran. The attacks were triggered by the Saturday execution of a prominent Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Sunni-ruled Saudia Arabia.

On Sunday, Arab League’s Secretary General Nabil Araby condemned the attacks, calling them a blatant violation of international conventions.

Sudan and Bahrain followed suit and cut diplomatic ties with Iran, while the United Arab Emirates said it was downgrading its relations with the Islamic republic. Earlier on Tuesday, Kuwait recalled its ambassador from the Iranian capital amid the row.
