Arab Parliament chief to Arab States: Unify to face sabotage plots.

CAIRO, June 19 (KUNA) -- The Arab Parliament called on Wednesday on Arab States to unify stances in the face of "plots of sabotage and hostile schemes" aimed at "disintegrating" Arab communities and jeopardizing the Arab nation security. The appeal was made by the parliament chairman, Dr. Meshaal Al-Salami, during the fourth session of the Arab Parliament's second legislative term. This session has coincided with very critical Arab developments, enormous challenges and grave difficulties afflicting the Arab world, he said. Al-Salami urged Palestinian factions to tackle their divisions, achieve national conciliation, affirming sanctity of Palestinian territories and rejecting any bid to partition these territories. The Arab Parliament chairman called on the international community to exert pressure on the Israeli occupation forces to halt breaches and daily racial practices against the Palestinian people, recurring bursts of the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque, settlement schemes and demolition of Palestinians' houses. He re-affirmed that the Palestinian question would remain the Arab nation top and pivotal cause, asserting that the parliament would continue supporting the Palestinian people's steadfastness till they attain their legitimate rights namely establishing their independent states with Jerusalem as its capital. Al-Salami appealed to the "brothers in the State of Libya" to resort to dialogue and wisdom for ending the armed conflict and spare the blood that has been spilled every day. The crisis in Libya can only be resolved with a consensual peaceful solution and rejection of external intervention in the nation internal affairs, he said. Al-Salami called for immediate cessation of fighting in the Syrian northwestern region of Idlib and condemned the Houthi militia's continuous mutiny against the legitimate authority. He also condemned their premeditated attacks on vital and civil installations in Saudi Arabia. These Houthi attacks on Saudi civil airports, mosques and houses are classified as war crimes according to the international law, Al-Salami said. He re-affirmed solidarity with the legitimate authority of Yemen and the Arab Coalition that supports the legitimacy. Al-Salami decried the acts of sabotage that targeted commercial ships and tankers in the UAE territorial waters and the Gulf of Oman. These are dangerous developments that threaten regional security and endanger international navigation and trade, he has warned. The Arab Parliament chief lauded the recent emergency Arab and Gulf summits, called for by Saudi Arabia, asserting support for the top meetings' resolutions that aim to strengthen Arab solidarity and protect the Arab nation security.
