Saudi king denounces 'blatant interference' by Iran in Arab affairs

Commenting on the U.S. embassy's relocation to Jerusalem, a decision which has been fiercely condemned by Arab states, Salman denounced the move.

"We renew our condemnation to the USA administration's decision concerning Jerusalem", King Salman stated.

King Salman, as Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, chaired Sunday's Summit, held in the eastern city of Dhahran.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman slammed Iran's "blatant interference" in regional affairs as Arab leaders met in the kingdom on Sunday for an annual summit.

He also blamed Tehran, which has repeatedly denied supplying ballistic missiles to Yemen's Houthi militia, of being responsible for the rebels' attacks targeting the Kingdom.

Asked about Trump's threats to fire Mueller, Ryan said he had been reassured by the White House that there were no such plans. An interesting phenomenon could be observed when outlets updated their stories a few hours later: they became more spun.

The King said that the most unsafe of what the world is facing today is the challenge of terrorism, which has allied itself with extremism and sectarianism to produce internal conflicts infused by many Arab countries.

Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said that current challenges "call for dialogue on priorities of Arab national security,"Arab News reported".

King Salman said that the Palestinian issue will remain the most important issue to the Arab World, until all Palestinians have attained their legal rights, including the establishment of a Palestinian independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Earlier, Jordan's King Abdullah, the chairman of the previous Arab Summit, delivered a speech in which he thanked King Salman for the warm reception and generous hospitality.

King Salman also affirmed his country's rejection of the intervention in the domestic affairs of the Arab countries and the "hostile" attempts to destabilize Arab national security, violating global law.
