Arab League's annual summit starts in Saudi Arabia

Arab leaders opened their annual summit in the eastern Saudi city of Dhahran on Sunday.

Qatar will not be represented by a senior official at an Arab summit taking place in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, in a sign that a almost year-old dispute between Gulf Arab neighbours is still a long way from being resolved.

During its presidency of the Arab Summit, Jordan, under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah II, managed to make key achievements at all levels, despite the hard situation in the region in general and the challenges facing the Arab world.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman opening the summit criticised US President Donald Trump's decision to transfer the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The Syrian conflict, the Palestinian issue and alleged Iranian interference are expected to dominate discussions during the one-day event.


El-Sisi will address with his Arab counterparts a number of issues of mutual interest, including Arab national security in light of recent developments, Egyptian presidency spokesperson Bassam Rady said in a statement to Al-Ahram.

The summit will also discuss regional and global issues and push forward worldwide efforts to combat terrorism.

"The Palestinian case is our priority and will remain so until all the Palestinians gain their rights", he said, stressing that East Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine. He also welcomed an agreement to establish an Arab cultural summit.

According to the report, HM King Abdullah II said that resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the cornerstone of finding solutions to the region's crises, and that Jerusalem is the key to its security and stability.
