Arab League calls for Syria chemical attack investigation

President Farmajo leaves for Saudi Arabia to attend Arab League Summit

The 29th Arab League summit kicks off in the Saudi city of Dhahran on Sunday amid several challenges facing the Arab world, mainly in Syria, Yemen and Palestine, in addition to Iranian and Turkish interference.

"The President will be addressing the the participants of the conference and during his stay (in Saudi Arabia) he will hold talks with other Arab leaders over Somalia's situation", said Ahmed.

They will also reiterate their commitment to peace that leads to the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital in line with the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, which offers Israel normal ties with the Arabs in return for withdrawal from territories it occupied in 1967.

King Salman also announced a $150 million donation for the maintenance of Islamic heritage in East Jerusalem.

.

"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.

Reuters did not mention his comment on the embassy in its coverage of the king's speech.

"The heavy shadow of destructive Saudi policies is evident in. the final statement of the summit", Iranian state media quoted Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying in Tehran.

Saudi Arabia and Iran have long considered each other to be regional enemies, and have taken part in proxy conflicts, such as in Syria.

Meanwhile, in their opening statements Sunday, Arab leaders vowed unity and unwavering support for Palestinians.


The AL also denounced use of chemical weapons in any place, requiring an worldwide investigation in accordance with global regulations into any such case.

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

The King welcomed the statement issued by the Security Council, which strongly condemned the launching of Iran-made ballistic missiles by the Houthi militia on Saudi cities.

"We urge the global community to sanction Iran and forbid it to back Houthi terrorists and provide them missiles", the statement said.

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

Saudi Arabia pushed for a tough, unified stance against Iran at the annual gathering of the 22-member Arab League.

Among the leaders in attendance was Sudan's Omar al-Bashir, who walked the red carpet and was greeted by King Salman.

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.
