Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz has said the Palestinian cause is a top priority for his country, stressing the Palestinian people’s right to establish their independent state with east Jerusalem as its capital.
The Saudi monarch made his remarks during the opening session of the 29th Arab Summit, which kicked off on Sunday in the eastern city of Dhahran with the participation of Arab leaders and foreign dignitaries.
The Saudi leader reiterated his rejection of the US administration’s recent decisions on Occupied Jerusalem and confirmed that east Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian territories.
He also hailed the international consensus that opposed the US decisions on Jerusalem.
King Abdullah II of Jordan opened the Arab Summit in Dhahran, stressing the need for a two-state solution and condemning the US’s decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.
The Jordanian king affirmed that Jerusalem is the key to peace in the region and the cornerstone for achieving a comprehensive solution that guarantees the establishment of an independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders and with east Jerusalem as its capital.
