DUBAI: King Abdullah II of Jordan opened the 29th Arab League Summit in Saudi Arabia’s Dhahran on Sunday stressing the need for a two-state solution and condemning the US’s decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman also condemned the move, while emphasizing the need to have East Jerusalem to be the capital of Palestine and he said the summit be renamed the Jerusalem Summit in solidarity with the Palestinians.

He called on the international community to take a strong stance against Iran’s aggression in the region, as well as the militias that are cutting off aid to war-torn Yemen.

The Arab League’s Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said that major threats facing Arabs are all equally important and dangerous.

“Current challenges call for dialogue on priorities of Arab national security,” Aboul Gheit said.

He also said that the Syrian regime bears a great responsibility in the “collapse of its homeland and loss of dignity.”

Saudi Arabia’s King received Arab leaders and heads of delegations participating in the 29th Arab League Summit at the King Abdulaziz International Cultural Center in Dhahran.
