Storyline


The annual Arab League (AL) Summit concluded in Saudi eastern port city of Dhahran with unwavering stands for preserving regional peace and unity, especially the problems related to Jerusalem, Syria, Yemen and Iran.

According to an official AL announcement released by the Saudi Press Agency after the summit, decades-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict is the core issue of concern to the entire Arab world, which firmly insists the fact that East Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Palestine.

The AL strongly opposes the U.S. administration's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and hopes all other countries will not follow the U.S. measures to harm Arab states' sovereignty.

UN resolutions shall be the only norms in negotiating the conflict, and Israel's unilateral actions could only tamper the facts and hamper the peace process, it said.

Addressing the summit, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud directly named the summit this year as "Summit for Jerusalem," and announced an aid of 200 million U.S. dollars for the Palestinians, of which 150 million dollars for religious causes and the rest for Palestinian refugees.

Referring to the Yemen crisis, the AL applied stern words to accuse Iran of supporting the Shiite Houthi rebels who ousted Yemen's internationally-recognized government and frequently launched missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, including capital Riyadh and Muslim holy city Mecca.

Iran must withdraw its army from the Arab world, especially Syria and Yemen, and stop interfering in other states' affairs, the AL added.

"The announcement urges the neighboring countries to respect territory integrity of Arab countries. It specifically mentioned that Turkey should withdraw its troops from Syria, which is also part of the general strategy of Arab countries. All the documents of the summit urge Iran to stop its related actions," said Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, secretary-general of the Arab League.

Meanwhile, the summit reiterated that political solution is the only path for Syria to realize peace. Only eliminating terrorist groups and cutting off world powers' meddling could create chance for Syrian people to build an independent Syria.

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

The one-day 29th summit was held Sunday in Dhahran. Tunisia is to held the 30th AL Summit.
