Saudi King Slams Iran, US Jerusalem Decision At Arab League Summit

"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 King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud attends the 29th Arab League Summit in Dhahran, shown in a handout picture released by the Saudi Royal Palace on April. 15, 2018.

King Salman, who travels rarely because of his declining health, said: "We reiterate our rejection of the United States decision on Jerusalem".

Saudi Arabia and Iran have for decades been locked in a struggle for regional supremacy that is now being played out in proxy wars in several countries, including Yemen and Syria.

"We renew our strong condemnation of terrorist acts carried out by Iran in the Arab region, and we reject its blatant interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries", King Salman said at a summit of Arab leaders, without referencing Friday's missile strikes on Syria, according to Reuters.

The 82-year-old monarch dubbed the Arab League meet the "Jerusalem summit" as he took aim at Washington's decision to recognise the disputed city as the capital of Israel and transfer the USA embassy from Tel Aviv.

Within the same context, Arab leaders will condemn the Turkish military operations in Syria's Afrin and the military operations in the Ghouta area by the regime with Russian and Iranian support.

"East Jerusalem is an integral part of Palestinian territories", he stressed before the gatherers from across the Arab world.

On Sunday, Jubeir commented on the statement adopted at the summit, saying that the Arab League condemned the use of chemical weapons by Syrian authorities, however the released text of the document does not include the statement.

Arab ministers at a preliminary meeting in Riyadh on Thursday focused heavily on blocking the move, unanimously condemning the decision by US President Donald Trump.

The administration of Trump has recognised Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and declared to the USA embassy to be located in Jerusalem.

He welcomed in this regard the United Nations Security Council statement that strongly condemned the Houthis for firing missiles against Saudi cities.

Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar have previously issued statements in support of the action while Egypt, Iraq and Lebanon expressed concern.

Leaders also discussed plans to hold an Arab cultural summit and the Arab Summit dates in 2019. Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court for five counts of crimes against humanity, three counts of genocide and two counts of war crimes.

There was little mention of Syria, whose president Bashar al Assad was not invited to the summit.
