Libyan foreign minister: Summit is catalyst for unified Arab action

Saudi Arabia and its allies expressed support for the strikes on Saturday, but Iraq and Lebanon have condemned them.

Regional powerhouses Saudi Arabia and Iran have been locked in a decades-long struggle for supremacy that is being waged in proxy wars in several countries, including Yemen and Syria.

King Salman named the current Arab League Summit the "Jerusalem Summit" to remind everyone around the world that Palestine is engraved in the conscience of the Arab people.

Qatar will not be represented by its Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani or any senior official at the Arab summit taking place in Saudi Arabia today.

The event was originally slated to be held in Riyadh, but the venue was relocated to Dhahran after Yemeni troops and Ansarullah fighters targeted the Saudi capital with missiles.

On Dec. 6, 2017, Trump announced his official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and instructed the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed holy city, which promptly triggered fury and condemnation throughout the Arab world.

The foreign ministers reiterated that the Palestinian cause remains a central issue for the Arab nation, rejecting the USA decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

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 USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

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.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Thursday the crisis would not be discussed at the meeting, Al Arabiya reported.
