Saudi Arabia has excluded Iran from participating in the Arab-Islamic summit with US President Donald Trump, to be held in Riyadh on May 21-22 while Pakistan and Guyana are invited to take part, Memo reported.
The sources said that invitations have been sent to Turkey, Pakistan, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Iraq, the Gulf states and other Arab and Islamic countries.
Professor of political science at Qatar University, Mohammed Al-Musfer, said: “Excluding Iran from the summit is understandable because of the severed diplomatic relations between Riyadh and Tehran, and because Iran is not part of the Islamic alliance.”
On the other hand, the Guyanese head-of-state has accepted the invitation to attend the upcoming US-Arab and Islamic Summit.
Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, has said the summit will bring together leaders of the world’s Islamic nations and invited heads of states.
“It will address ways of building more robust and effective security partnerships to counter and prevent the growing threat of terrorism and violent extremism around the globe through promoting tolerance and moderation,” he explained.
