Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Arab leaders agreed on the need for Iran and its militias to withdraw from the region and stop Tehran’s meddling in the internal affairs of neighboring countries.

Jubeir’s statements came during the press conference at the conclusion of the Arab League’s 29th summit held in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, and was named the “Jerusalem Summit” after Saudi King Salman stressed that the Palestinian issue is “our first issue and will remain so”.

According to Saudi Foreign Minister, the summit also called for supporting strategies to maintain Arab national security. He also said that Arab leadership agreed at the summit on the idea brought forth by Saudi King Salman to hold a future Arab cultural summit.

He also told reporters that there is an intention for Beirut to host the Arab Economic Summit in 2019.
