Dhahran (UNA-OIC) � The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) in the eastern Saudi city of Dhahran will host the 29th Arab Summit, under the chairmanship of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, in the presence of a large number of heads of state and leaders of Arab countries.

The summit is being held amid escalating events and thorny files awaiting Arab leaders’ decisions to tackle the dangers and challenges facing the Arab nation, especially Iran’s escalating interference targeting the security and stability of the region as well as the highly inflammable situation in Syria and developments in the Palestinian territories.

The leaders are expected to emphasize peace as a strategic option and the Arab Peace Initiative (API) as one of the most important references. They will reiterate their categorical rejection of the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem, underscore support for the Jerusalemites and condemn Israeli actions against the peaceful Great March of Return demonstration.

In addition to the Arab leaders and heads of delegations, the summit features a number of heads of international organizations, led by United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat and UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.

The most prominent files, crystallized during the foreign ministers’ meetings in the Saudi capital Riyadh for submission to the Arab leaders, include the rejection of any deal or initiative that does not comply with the international references of the peace process for ending the conflict with Israel, in an allusion to the rejection of so-called the Deal of the Century”, which is being formulated by the United States.

The leaders will also be presented with the decision of the Arab Ministerial Committee on the developments of the crisis with Iran, which condemned the continued interference of Tehran in the internal affairs of the Arab countries.

During their meeting in Riyadh, the foreign ministers approved the Arab Comprehensive Document to Combat Terrorism, to be submitted to the leaders. The ministers will also submit a resolution to the summit on Turkey’s intervention in Iraq and the violation of Iraqi sovereignty by the Turkish forces.
