This years' Arab Summit or 'Jerusalem Summit' as it should now be addressed is one that has come at just the right time, during all the political turmoil in the Arab world. Several leaders from the Arab world travelled to Dhahran in Saudi Arabia to discuss solutions and reforms for the recent crises that have been occurring.  

Several statements and resolutions from the summit already show the great unity of the Arab world and their efforts in trying to maintain peace in the region.

We reiterate our rejection of the US administration’s decision on Jerusalem. We commend the international consensus that rejects it. We emphasise that East Jerusalem is an integral part of the Palestinian land.
