Arab leaders-minus Syrian President Bashar al-Assad-meet in Saudi Arabia for a summit on Sunday as world powers face off over Syria and tensions rise between Riyadh and Tehran.

In a ministerial meeting that was held on Thursday, the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said that Palestine and the situation there will top discussions at the Arab summit.

On Saturday, the umbrella Arab League said the summit will not discuss Gulf crisis, which was triggered by last year's cut-off of diplomatic ties between four Arab states and Qatar amid accusations for Doha of supporting terrorism.
