President Farmajo leaves for Saudi Arabia to attend Arab League Summit

Abdel Fattah El Sisi

Dhahran, Saudi Arabia:Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Sunday slammed Iran's interference in the region and lashed out at the U.S. over Jerusalem as Arab leaders met in the kingdom for their annual summit.

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.

They will also reiterate their commitment to peace that leads to the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital in line with the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, which offers Israel normal ties with the Arabs in return for withdrawal from territories it occupied in 1967.

Sunday's meeting will be the first Arab League summit since Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut their diplomatic ties with Qatar 10 months ago and the first since President Donald Trump announced his decision to relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Moreover, the summit affirmed the role of the General Secretariat of the Arab League as being responsible of monitoring the execution of the report's previously mentioned recommendations, in coordination with the member states.

"We stress our absolute condemnation of the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people and we demand an independent global investigation to guarantee the application of worldwide law against anyone proven to have used chemical weapons", said a statement distributed to journalists.

The summit, held at Dhahran's King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, brings together the kings, presidents and leaders of 17 Arab countries.

Conserve Energy Lights, water heaters, and air conditioning units, among other things, consume the most electricity in hotels. Through these actions, the hotel can build a better name by showing its clients how it values environmental sustainability.

The summit begins 24 hours after the United States, France and Britain launched controversial air strikes in war-torn Syria in response to a reported regime chemical attack on the decimated rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta last week.

"We renew our strong condemnation of terrorist acts carried out by Iran in the Arab region, and we reject its blatant interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries", he said, without giving specifics.

"We reiterate our rejection of the United States decision on Jerusalem", King Salman said.

Arab ministers at a preliminary meeting in Riyadh on Thursday focused heavily on blocking the move, unanimously condemning the decision by US President Donald Trump.

The two regional titans back opposing sides in a range of hotspots across the Middle East, including Lebanon and Syria and in Saudi Arabia's southern neighbour Yemen.

Flags of the Arab League, Saudi Arabia and other participating countries have been placed along several routes in Dammam and Al-Khobar.
