The 30th session of Arab Summit opened Sunday in Tunis with attendance of many Arab leaders, who in turn delivered their speeches calling for the Arab unity in fighting against terrorism and standing together with the Palestinian people in their fight for an independent state with Al Quds East as its capital.
The Arab Leaders voiced rejection of the US administration’s decision to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights which is not only a threat to Syria but also a violation of the United Nations Resolutions.
Addressing the opening session, Custodian of the two holly Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud said his country rejects a U.S. decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
He said that Saudi Arabia reaffirms unequivocal rejection of infringing the Syrian sovereignty over Golan Heights.
On the Syrian crisis, the Saudi King underlined the need to reach a political solution that “guarantees the sovereignty of Syria and the prevention of any foreign intervention, in accordance with international resolutions.”
As for the situation in the Palestinian territories, he said the Palestinian issue would remain a top priority for the kingdom “until the Palestinian people regain their legitimate rights”.
Besides, He reiterated Riyadh’s support for UN efforts aimed at reaching a political solution to the five-year conflict in Yemen.
At the opening speech, President Beji Caid Essebsi said that the Arab nation does neither lack joint action mechanisms nor human and material resources or even the necessary components for unity and complementarity, but it has remained inherent to sensitive situations and issues still to be resolved and are on the contrary continuing to get more complicated, to increase the burden of countries and weaken the capacities of peoples at the political, security, human and developmental levels.
