RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — King Fahd told a summit of Persian Gulf leaders Saturday that Iran's conditions for ending its war with Iraq are unreasonable and that prolonging the war could drag their nations into it.

"Force will not solve the problem because every power will have to defend itself and, what would be worse, some countries might seek help from other powers," Saudi Arabia's monarch told the opening session of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council meeting.

The leaders of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates plan to meet for four days, with the Iran-Iraq War and Persian Gulf security topping the agenda.
