Arab League Summit kicks off in Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah

The 32nd Arab League Summit kicked off in Jeddah with Arab leaders. The summit discussed regional and global issues crucial to regional stability.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attended the summit on Friday for the first time since his country was suspended from the Arab League after the Syrian civil war outbreak in 2011, Xinhua news agency reported.

Algerian Prime Minister Ayman Benabderrahmane delivered the opening speech before handing over the Arab League rotating presidency to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, Al Arabiya TV reported.

Benabderrahmane highlighted the recent crisis in Sudan, calling on all parties to resort to dialogue to end the crisis and avoid further escalation in the country.

He also underlined the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, urging the international community to stop Israel’s settlement expansion.

After receiving the Arab League presidency, the Saudi Crown Prince announced the summit’s beginning, welcoming Syria’s return to the Arab League.

He hoped that Syria’s return to the Arab League would pave the way for the end of the crisis in the country.

He welcomed the agreement reached between Sudan’s warring parties last week and reiterated the need for dialogue to end the crisis.

Noting that the Palestinian cause remains the Arab’s “pivotal cause,” the Crown Prince said the Kingdom wouldn’t allow the region to be transformed into a zone for conflicts.
