King Salman denounces Iran's 'terrorist' acts

King Salman denounces Iran's 'terrorist' acts

Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz took to his official Twitter account on Sunday to express the kingdom's pleasure to host their "brothers" at the Arab League summit in Dhahran.

Al-Jubeir had lambasted U.S. decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem town saying the move will hamper the worldwide efforts to end Arab-Israel conflict in Middle East.

"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, adding, "We welcome the statement by the Security Council which strongly condemned the launching of Iranian-made ballistic missiles by the Houthi terrorist militias toward Saudi cities".

Iran's influence is wielded through a land route of armed parties in the West Asia- the so-called "Shia Crescent" that cuts across the mainly Sunni Arab world.

There was no mention in King Salman's remarks nor in the summit's closing statement of Saturday's missile launch by the United States, Britain and France against three alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

Saudi Arabia will use the summit to seek Arab support to pile the pressure on Iran.

Iran has always been a supporter of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and backs Lebanon's Shia Hizbollah movement, whose fighters are deployed in Syria alongside regime forces.

The Qatari delegation will be headed by Doha's permanent representative to the Arab League, Saif bin Muqaddam al-Buainain, the state news agency said without elaborating. They provided few details.

"We emphasize that East Al-Quds is an integral part of the Palestinian territory", King Salman affirmed.

THERE have been 40 summits of Arab leaders in the last 70 years.

Most of the 22 other countries are represented by heads of state or government.

This year's summit was even more important than the usual ones, in such a delicate moment for the war in Syria.

Sheikh Tamim returned to Doha on Saturday from a US trip where he met Trump.

Ahead of the summit, the four boycotting nations said their demands - including closing the Al Jazeera television station and reducing ties with Iran - were "a necessary basis" for a resolution to the crisis with Qatar.

"We extend our support to the Palestinians' right to establish their homeland based on the 1967 lines with the capital city Jerusalem, as stated in the global resolutions and Arab peace initiative", said Al-Jubeir during his speech at foreign ministers' preparatory meeting on Friday.
