The institution also welcomed the king’s decision to dedicate $50 million to UNRWA and $150 million to the Islamic Endowment Support Program in Jerusalem.

In his opening remarks at the summit held in the eastern Saudi city of Dammam, the king said: “The Palestinian issue will remain our top issue until all Palestinians get their legal right to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

“As we reiterate our condemnation and rejection of the American administration’s decision concerning Jerusalem, we commend the international consensus that rejects it, and we affirm that East Jerusalem is an inalienable part of the Palestinian territory.Al-Azhar backs King Salman’s initiatives on Palestine
