On Dec. 6, 2017, Trump announced his official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and instructed the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed holy city, which promptly triggered fury and condemnation throughout the Arab world.

The Saudi King also presented the kingdom's initiative and willingness to deal with the challenges that the Arab national security is facing.

The issue of Jerusalem and the Hashemite custodianship over Islamic and Christian sites in the holy city was at the centre of Jordan's diplomacy for the protection of the holy shrines and to stop Israeli violations and unilateral measures.

"The Palestinian case is our priority and will remain so until all the Palestinians gain their rights", he said, stressing that East Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud referred to the Palestinian issue as the top agenda of the Arab meeting.

The summit in Damam, dubbed 'Arab Reunification, ' will aim to find solutions to various Arab crises.

The summit will also discuss regional and global issues and push forward worldwide efforts to combat terrorism.

According to the report, HM King Abdullah II said that resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the cornerstone of finding solutions to the region's crises, and that Jerusalem is the key to its security and stability.
