Gulf Arab leaders call for unity, hint against Iran threat

RIYADH - Gulf Arab leaders on Tuesday endorsed Saudi King Abdullah's call to form a "single entity" after hinting at Iranian threats, and demanded Syria immediately implement an Arab peace plan to defuse months of violence over anti-government protests.
Gulf leaders agreed on "...adopting king Abdullah's suggestion of moving from cooperation to unity that would support our people overcome the challenges faced by the GCC," the statement said.
King Abdullah on Monday said that the security of Saudi Arabia and its Arab neighbors was being targeted, in an apparent reference to regional rival Iran, and called on Gulf Arab states to "move beyond the stage of cooperation and into the stage of unity in a single entity".
