The 29th Arab League summit kicked off Sunday at King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, commonly known as "Ithra" in Dhahran.

While calling upon the worldwide community to work towards facilitating delivery of humanitarian assistance in all regions of Yemen, the King said, "We hold the Iranian-backed Houthi terrorist militias fully responsible for the emergence and continuation of the Yemeni crisis and the human suffering that has afflicted Yemen". The two monarchs expressed optimism about the Dhahran Summit to produce resolutions to contribute to boosting joint Arab action, solidarity and bringing economic and trade development in the interest of Arab nation.

The King said that the most unsafe of what the world is facing today is the challenge of terrorism, which has allied itself with extremism and sectarianism to produce internal conflicts infused by many Arab countries.
