Arab leaders have said Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen will continue until Iranian-backed Shiite rebels there “withdraw” and surrender their weapons.

The warning came in a final communique released on the second day of an Arab summit in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh.

The summit has been dominated by the crisis in Yemen as airstrikes continue against the positions of the rebels and their allies.

The communique also called for military and intelligence cooperation between Arab countries and international efforts to combat Islamic militant groups.

It also urged the West to adopt a comprehensive approach to militancy, a thinly veiled reference to the desire by Egypt and others to see a military intervention in Libya, home to an affiliate of the Islamic State group as well as other extremists.
