Arab League should try to solve regional problems instead of blaming Iran

Abdel Fattah El Sisi

"We stress our absolute condemnation of the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people and we demand an independent global investigation to guarantee the application of worldwide law against anyone proven to have used chemical weapons", said a statement distributed to journalists.

He also announced a $150m (£105m) donation for the maintenance of Islamic heritage in East Jerusalem, including the Al Aqsa mosque, and $50m (£35m) in funding for the United Nations agency that provides aid to Palestinian refugees.

But King Salman avoided any mention of Syria in his address, as a seat marked "Syrian Arab Republic" sat empty in the hall.

"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", he said, without giving specifics.

Al-Jubeir had lambasted United States decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem town saying the move will hamper the worldwide efforts to end Arab-Israel conflict in Middle East.

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

During the summit, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz criticized Tehran's influence on Arab countries, claiming that it violated the principles of global law.

The summit took place in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, a day after the coordinated attacks by the US, UK and France on three sites allegedly linked to the production of chemical weapons in Syria.

All educational institutions have been declared close on Sunday for the 29th Arab League summit that opens in Dhahran on Sunday.

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.

Minister Awad who reached Saudi Arabia on Thursday attended the preparatory meeting on Friday ahead of the Summit.

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

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose government has denied using or possessing chemical weapons, was not present at the meeting after the country was suspended from the group in 2011.

Gulf Arab states have made massive donations to Syria but have not officially offered asylum to Syrians.
