Their push for a tough stand against Iran is expected to dominate the Arab League Summit as regional tensions grow over the wars in Syria and Yemen. He also welcomed an agreement to establish an Arab cultural summit.

Reporters watch the speech of Saudi King Salman from a press room, during the opening of the Arab summit in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, Sunday, April 15, 2018.

"East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian territories", he added.

The Omani Deputy Prime Minister for Cabinet Affairs Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said arrived at King Abdulaziz Air Base in Dhahran yesterday for the 29th Arab League summit.

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.

The Saudi King also presented the kingdom's initiative and willingness to deal with the challenges that the Arab national security is facing.

"Bahrain always appreciates your courageous stances in its support, and in rejection and condemnation of external interference that affects the internal affairs of our country, and which we are working on repelling and defeating", HM the King added.

AL Secretary General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit noted that the crises gripping the Middle East will further deteriorate and weaken the entire region if not harnessed.

"We renew our optimism of the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his great efforts to ensure a strong Arab role, a unified position and a clear message that the worldwide community understands, appreciates and responds to", HM the King added.
