Saudi king seeks Arab unity on Iran, Jerusalem

King Salman, dubbing the Arab League meeting the "Jerusalem summit", reiterated Saudi Arabia's rejection of the US decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

King Salman also affirmed his country's rejection of the intervention in the domestic affairs of the Arab countries and the "hostile" attempts to destabilize Arab national security, violating global law.

On this note, he "strongly condemned Iran's terrorist acts in the Arab region". The United Nations says 10,000 people died in the fighting.

He therefore called for a "strong international" stance on Tehran's behavior.

Dhahran, Apr. 15 (BNA): His Majesty King Hamad bi Isa Al Khalifa, today at the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture, met the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, on the sidelines of HM the King's participation in the Arab Summit. "We emphasize that East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian land".

Trump has claimed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's administration has used chemical weapons. France has 650 troops based in the United Arab Emirates overall.

Abdullah opened the 22-member gathering stressing the need for a "two-state solution", - but King Salman went further, underscoring his nation's insistence on the establishment of a Palestinian state "with East Jerusalem as its capital".

King Salman therefore rejected and condemned the American administration's decision to relocate its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, hailing the worldwide denouncement of Washington's decision.

King Salman slammed Iran's "blatant interference" in regional affairs.

UN General Assembly Secretary-General António Guterres, African Union Commission Chairperson Moussa Faki, and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini are among the attendees.
