MANAMA, Bahrain — Iran's prime minister today rejected an Arab League call for a cease-fire and vowed that the war against Iraq will go on until "the complete suppression of the aggressor," an official report said.
Iraq said its planes attacked another ship in the Persian Gulf off Iran, the sixth vessel Iraq has claimed to have attacked this week. Shipping sources confirmed that one tanker was hit Wednesday night.
Iraq's state-controlled newspapers, meanwhile, termed the Arab League summit in Amman, Jordan, "historic, successful and great."
The summit, called to seek concerted Arab action against Persian Iran to end the 7-year-old gulf war, concluded with unexpected unity and a strong condemnation of Tehran's "intransigence, provocations and threats."
Prime Minister Hussein Moussavi of Iran was quoted by the Islamic Republic News Agency as claiming that decisions made at the four-day meeting, which ended Wednesday, were dictated by the United States. He termed the meeting a defeat for Arabs.
