Saudi King Salman Insists 'East Jerusalem Must Be Capital of Palestinian State'

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

King Salman, dubbing the Arab League meeting the "Jerusalem summit", reiterated Saudi Arabia's rejection of the USA decision to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"We reiterate our rejection of the United States administration's decision on Jerusalem", the King said, adding, "We commend the global consensus that rejects it".

"Terrorism is the biggest challenge to our world today", King Salman said, "Saudi Arabia renews its strong condemnation of the Iranian "terrorist" acts [that took place] in the Arab region". "Up to 119 missiles were launched by Houthi militants, where some of them targeted the holy city of Mecca", Salman added.

He highlighted the crises in the region, holding the Iran-backed Houthis militias responsible for the ongoing Yemeni crisis.

King Salman vowed full support to all efforts aimed at reaching a political solution to the crisis in Yemen in accordance with the GCC Initiative as well as the decisions of the comprehensive national dialogue conference and the Security Council Resolution 2216.

He added, "all-purpose objective in existence invites intention in passing". Teena was later portrayed by Hilary Swank in the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry .

King Salman called on the worldwide community to support the delivery of humanitarian aid to different parts in Yemen.

The summit, held at Dhahran's King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, brings together the kings, presidents and leaders of 17 Arab countries.

King Salman therefore rejected and condemned the American administration's decision to relocate its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, hailing the global denouncement of Washington's decision.

In the Palestinian territories, he reiterated Riyadh's stance that east Jerusalem must be the capital of an independent Palestinian state.

King Salman slammed Iran's "blatant interference" in regional affairs.
