TUNIS – It is expected that the leaders of the Arab countries, who share their regional competitions for a long time, will join on Sunday to oppose the US decision to recognize the annexation of Israel to the Arab lands captured in 1967.

Arab leaders are already struggling with the riots in Algeria and Sudan, international pressure on the war in Yemen, the regional division of Iran under the influence of the Middle East and the bitter Arab Gulf dispute.

They face a new challenge when President Donald Trump signed a statement on Israel's recognition of Golan Heights last week, less than four months after Jerusalem was recognized as the capital of Israel. Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of the future state.

Arab officials said that the summit will be dominated by the demands of the Golan Heights and the Palestinians by an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, territories that were also occupied by Israel in the 1967 war.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebrans Bassil said on Saturday that Arab ministers have expressed their support for the proposal to recognize that the US movement is violating the US Charter for the Acquisition of Land by Force.

They also agreed to support Syria's right to recover the rights of Golan and Lebanon to Shebaa farms, a small strip of land next to Golan, which Beirut claims to be, he tweeted.

Summit representative Mahmoud Al-Khmeiry said that Arab leaders would repeat the Arab call for peace with Israel in exchange for the occupied Arab lands and reject any initiative that does not comply with US resolutions.

It seemed that Khmeiry refers to the unpublished US peace plan presented by White House Adviser Jared Kushner and Trump's Son, who have refused to consult the Palestinians.

Short helpers have said that his movements in the private Arab reaction have been less serious than the experts.

While the opposition against Israel and its actions can bring together 22 Arab members, Arab countries are still divided on a number of other issues, including the protests of democracy that have struck the region since 2011, and the influence of the Middle East in Iran.

The Siberian Muslim Forces, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf, said Friday that Shiite Muslim rival Iran is still the biggest threat to the region.

The Tunis Summit will be the first time that Saudi Arabia's and Qatar's rulers will attend the same meeting since 2017 when Riyadh and its allies in Doha imposed a political and economic boycott. Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar of supporting terrorism and attacking Iran, Doha denies.

Sudanese and Algerian leaders are expected to visit both countries, and both countries will be overwhelmed by the government.

Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Algerian Pregnant, 82-year-old President, 20 years old, and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who has worked for three years and whose international prosecutors wanted possible war crimes in his country in the Darfur region, both calls to leave .

Syria has been suspended from the Arab League since 2011, when it began to repress protesters at the beginning of the civil war. Liga has said that there is still no consensus to allow Syria to rebuild.
