Saudi king announces $150 million for East Jerusalem

"We also reaffirm our steadfast position towards the brotherly Palestinian people and its leadership, which is at the top of our priorities, stressing the need for a just and comprehensive peace that leads to the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State on the June 4, 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with the two-state solution, the Arab Peace Initiative, and the relevant resolutions of global legitimacy", HM the King said while referring to the Palestinian issue".

On Dec. 6, 2017, Trump announced his official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and instructed the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed holy city, which promptly triggered fury and condemnation throughout the Arab world.

"East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian territories", he added, Sputnik reported. The summit will be concluded by a major military parade, which will be attended by the leaders, headed by King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense.

On Sunday, King Salman made it clear he was unhappy with Mr Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, an opinion backed by the other leaders at the summit.

United Nations rejects Russian attempt to condemn Syria airstrikes
Global stock markets have had a whipsaw week, largely fuelled by Trump's tendency to change his mind over top policy issues. The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and risky actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

Salman announced that Riyadh would be making a $150 million donation to East Jerusalem.

Top leaders of the Arab world started arriving in Saudi Arabia ahead of the 29th Arab League summit to be held in Dammam today.

There was little mention of Syria, whose president Bashar al Assad was not invited to the summit.

The two rivals are engaged in proxy wars in Yemen and Syria but also back opposing sides in Lebanon, Iraq and Bahrain.
