Saudi king rejects US plan to transfer embassy to Jerusalem

The Malaysian flag was raised in Madain, witnessed by some 200 foreign journalists who were here to cover the Arab League Summit today.

Saudi Arabia's push for a tough stand against its arch-rival Iran is expected to dominate an Arab League summit on Sunday as regional tensions grow over the wars in Syria and Yemen.

The summit also reaffirmed UAE's sovereignty over its three islands and reiterated its support for all peaceful means and measures taken by the UAE to restore its sovereignty over the occupied islands.

Arab ministers at a preliminary meeting in Riyadh on Thursday focused heavily on blocking the move, unanimously condemning the decision by US President Donald Trump. "We emphasize that East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian land".

"Iran and terrorism are two sides of the same coin in the region", he said, while stressing that Houthi militias bear full responsibility for the crisis in Yemen.
