Arab League Summit Slams Iran, Chemical Weapons Use In Syria

President Farmajo leaves for Saudi Arabia to attend Arab League Summit

Dhahran, Apr. 16 (BNA): King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud's decision to rename the 29th Arab Summit as the "Jerusalem Summit" hailed step by all participants, said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), hailing Riyadh's donations to Palestinians.

"We confirm that East Jerusalem is an inseparable part of the Palestinian land", Saudi King Salman said.

But today's Arab summit in Saudi Arabia is worth keeping an eye on.

In mid-March, UNRWA said it did not have the necessary funds to continue running until the summer.

Last December, Trump reversed decades of USA policy by announcing the United States' recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Ahmed Aboul Gheit, secretary-general of the Arab League, said that the serious crises in the region facilitated foreign interference.

Breaking with years of United States policy, Trump also announced the USA embassy would move to Jerusalem, drawing global condemnation and sparking a wave of heated protests around the world.

The statement also included the need to confront regional intervention in the domestic affairs of Arab countries, in addition to any intervention that targets their social unity and national identity.

Saudi Arabia's push for a tough stand against its arch-rival Iran will also dominate the summit as regional tensions grow over the wars in Syria and Yemen.

The report also said that the president of the 28th Arab summit, HM King Abdullah II, reaffirmed that a comprehensive and just peace in the region would only come about through the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state, as partial formulas in addressing the region's crises or bypassing the Palestinian issue will never bring the stability aspired-for by Arabs.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt severed diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

The 82-year-old monarch dubbed the Arab League meeting the "Jerusalem summit" as he took aim at Washington's decision to transfer its embassy in Israel to the holy city. Doha denies the charges.

"Tehran's principled policy has always been based on maintaining more convergence and mutual respect for the sovereignty of other countries, especially the neighbours, and the observance of good neighbourliness".

"The summit condemned Iranian interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries, either through igniting sectarian strife or planting militias in Arab countries such as Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen, and harboring al Qaeda terrorists", Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told a news conference.
