Arab League Summit Statement Forgone Condemning Syria for Chemical Attack

Saudi Arabia condemns Iran in wake of missile strikes in Syria

"The Saudis are going to push for a much harsher stance on Iran-not necessarily on the nuclear dossier per se, but on Iranian influence in the Arab countries, particularly Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen", said Karim Bitar of the Paris-based Institute of worldwide and Strategic Affairs.

The King said Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, had fired 116 missiles at the kingdom since Saudi Arabia went to war in Yemen three years ago to try to roll back Houthi gains there.

US President Donald Trump's decision to transfer his country's embassy to occupied Jerusalem was a top concern for Jordan, which has tirelessly worked, making intense contacts at all levels and garnering wide worldwide support for its stand in opposing the US move and supporting the Palestinians' right to set up their independent state.

He also lauded Saudi Arabia's announcement to donate $200 million to Palestine and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

Saudi Arabia's King Salman will chair Sunday's summit in the eastern city of Dhahran, home to Saudi Arabia's oil giant Aramco and 160 kilometres (100 miles) across the Gulf from Iran.

Qatar's emir did not attend the summit, instead dispatching Qatar's Arab League representative to the meeting.

"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", he said.

Delegates pledged to support the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future Palestinian state.

The first one was special but this one is perhaps the one I'm most proud of. "[This season] differs in the fact that we were consistent", the Belgian explained.

Arab ministers at a preliminary meeting in Riyadh on Thursday focused heavily on blocking the move, unanimously condemning Trump's decision.

His comments came just days after his son, powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 32, told reporters during a US tour that Israel also had a "right" to its own state.

Saudi King Salman told leaders from across the 22-member Arab League that Iran was to blame for instability and meddling in the region.

The summit comes as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt are locked off in a months-long diplomatic dispute with Qatar accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Syria has been suspended from the organization for the past seven years over Assad's initial crackdown on protests before the uprising turned into all-out war.

Tunisia will host the next Arab League summit in 2019.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel since 1967 - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.

Gulf Arab states have made massive donations to Syria but have not officially offered asylum to Syrians.
