Iran has denied accusations of interference in the affairs of regional countries made in an Arab League summit, calling them baseless, lies and the product of Saudi pressure.  
"It was hoped that the summit would take a positive step toward regional cooperation…but the heavy shadow of destructive Saudi policies is evident in certain clauses of the final statement of the summit," Foreign Ministry spokesman, Bahram Qasemi, said late on Sunday, IRNA reported. 
The summit, in the Saudi city of Dhahran on Sunday, denounced what it claimed was Iran’s interference in the affairs of other countries, called for more international sanctions on Tehran and urged it to withdraw "its militias" from Syria and Yemen, Reuters reported.
