Arab League rejects all unilateral Israeli steps

President Farmajo leaves for Saudi Arabia to attend Arab League Summit

Saudi to pressure rival Iran

Minister Awad who reached Saudi Arabia on Thursday attended the preparatory meeting on Friday ahead of the Summit.

Summits of the Arab League, established in 1945, rarely result in action.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel since 1967 - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.

Al-Jubeir, Saudi foreign minister, said Qatar was not on the agenda because "it's not a big issue".

He added: "East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian territories".

They will urge Arab states to commit $100 million per month to support Palestine as soon as possible in light of Israeli financial and economic measures against Palestine including withholding customs revenues that should go to the Palestinian authorities.

Saud al-Qahtani, Saudi royal court advisor, published a photo showing various Arab leaders before a simple dinner table spread after finishing the conclusion of the 29th Arab League Summit held in Dhahran.

On Saturday, the umbrella Arab League said the summit will not discuss Gulf crisis, which was triggered by last year's cut-off of diplomatic ties between four Arab states and Qatar amid accusations for Doha of supporting terrorism.

Sheikh Tamim returned to Doha on Saturday from a US trip where he met President Donald Trump, who had publicly sided with the Saudis and Emiratis early in the crisis, but is now pushing for a resolution to restore Gulf Arab unity and maintain a united front against Iran.

The summit took place in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, a day after the coordinated attacks by the US, UK and France on three sites allegedly linked to the production of chemical weapons in Syria.

Saudi Arabia's push for a tough stand against Iran is expected to dominate the summit.

"We renew our strong condemnation of Iran's terrorist acts in the Arab region and reject its blatant interference in the affairs of Arab countries", the king said.

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

He emphasised that the Greater and Lesser Tunbs, and Abu Musa islands belong to Iran reiterating that the efforts of some southern neighbours to create fake names for these islands is a baseless, useless and essentially false claim.

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.
