RIYADH: The parliament on Tuesday welcomed the Kuwait Declaration issued at the end of the 38th Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) meeting and its emphasis on King Salman’s vision that was approved by the GCC summit in 2015 which laid down the basis for integration between the GCC member states in all areas.
Chaired by King Salman at Al-Yamamah Palace in Riyadh, the Cabinet lauded the GCC’s pivotal role in preserving peace and stability in the region and fighting terrorist groups and extremist ideologies.
Cabinet members also appreciated the unanimous global rejection of US President Donald Trump’s announcement that he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the transfer of the Us Embassy to it.

The parliament renewed the Kingdom’s deep regret over the US decision, which, it said, represents a great bias against the legitimate and historic rights of the Palestinian people in Al-Quds, which were guaranteed by the relevant international resolutions.
It also asked the US administration to revoke the decision and side with the international will allowing the Palestinians to regain their legitimate rights.

At the regional level, the Cabinet congratulated the Iraqi government and people for liberating their lands from Daesh.
The parlaiment also condemned the terrorist attack on a New York City subway on Monday. It also reaffirmed the Kingdom’s rejection of terrorism and extremism in all forms and manifestations regardless of their sources. It also condemned the atrocities committed against the Rohingya Muslims. The Cabinet welcomed the resolution of the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva for its rejection of the systematic violations of human rights in Myanmar, notably among the Rohingyas.
