BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Egypt’s President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz stressed, on Sunday, that the Palestinian cause remains the central cause of all Arab countries.

During al-Sisi’s speech at the first Arab-European Summit, "Shared challenges have been embodied in the hotbeds of conflict in the region, foremost among them the Palestinian cause, which is the central and primary cause of the Arabs.”

He added that the Palestinian cause is “one of the main roots of the regional conflicts.”

He said, "I cannot but warn of the repercussions of the continuation of this conflict on all our countries.”

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's King Salman asserted the importance of the Palestinian cause, praising European Union countries' stances on the issue.

He noted, "The Palestinian cause is a priority for Arab states, and efforts should be made to retrieve the rights of the Palestinian people.”

The summit commenced on Sunday and is the first ever platform that brings together Arab and European leaders tackle a number of political and economic topics, including the Palestinian cause and other issues including organized crime, terrorism, illegal immigration, and human trafficking.
