Arab League Summit Statement Forgone Condemning Syria for Chemical Attack

In an opening speech, Saudi Arabia's King Salman also criticized Iran's "blatant interference in other countries".

"The summit condemned Iranian interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries, either through igniting sectarian strife or planting militias in Arab countries such as Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen, and harboring al Qaeda terrorists", Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told a news conference.

On the Palestinian issue, Aboul-Gheit said Arab efforts have succeeded in taking a firm stand against the December decision by the U.S. to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, describing the American decision as a "regression in our Palestinian cause".

They will also reiterate their commitment to peace that leads to the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital in line with the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, which offers Israel normal ties with the Arabs in return for withdrawal from territories it occupied in 1967.

His comments came just days after his son, powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 32, told reporters during a USA tour that Israel also had a "right" to its own state.

He also announced a $150m (£105m) donation for the maintenance of Islamic heritage in East Jerusalem, including the Al Aqsa mosque, and $50m (£35m) in funding for the United Nations agency that provides aid to Palestinian refugees.

Saudi Arabia slammed longtime rival Iran on Sunday following western missile strikes on Syria, an ally of Tehran, last week.

The Fireman's Ball was released in 1967 and Forman was then invited to the USA by Paramount Pictures to make a film in America. He was best known for the film, which also saw Jack Nicholson win a best actor Academy Award, as well as the movie Amadeus .

The summit begins on Sunday in the East coast city of Dammam.

In February, Russia vetoed a Security Council resolution that would have expressed concern over Iran's failure to block supplies of missiles to Yemen's Houthis.

Tensions have eased slightly in recent months but Qatar still only sent its representative to the Arab League to the Dhahran summit.

Assad was not invited to the gathering, though most heads of state from across the Middle East and North Africa attended the Arab League meeting, including Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in Darfur.

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

The Arab League was founded in 1945 to protect newly-won independence throughout the region.

There are 22 members of the Arab League but Syria's membership has been suspended since 2011 because of the civil war.
