Saudis, UAE pledge $100 million to Ivanka Trump-proposed fund

Zarif Hits back at Trump: Foreign Policy or Simply Milking Saudi of $480B?

In the first official reaction to the USA president's speech during the summit he held in Riyadh with leaders from 55 Arab and Islamic states, Zarif rejected allegations that Tehran exports and promotes terrorism and interferes in the internal affairs of its Arab neighbors.

"[Terrorists] do not worship God, they worship death", he told leaders of more than 50 Muslim-majority nations.

While referring to the various terror incidents that took place in the US, Trump said, "Few nations have been spared the violent reach of terrorism".

The visit raised questions about whether the US would indicate the site is Israeli territory.

At present, Ivanka Trump holds a position of an assistant to President of the United States.

Donald Trump is making his way from Saudi Arabia to Israel, where he will spend the next two days of his foreign trip.

That fire is 20 percent contained and resources are being diverted from there to the Brentwood blaze. Investigators say the fire is considered suspicious at this time because of its location.

The summit welcomed the creation of the Riyadh-based Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology, and the efforts of the Arab and Islamic states in preventing terror attacks and exchange of vital information about foreign fighters and their association with terror groups.

US President Donald Trump says he came away from a weekend visit to Saudi Arabia with new reasons for hope that peace and stability can be achieved in the Middle East.

"You'll hear a really strong statement from the president on his commitment to Israel and to Israel's defense", the official added. "Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes", he said. The Washington Post said the probe had reached into the White House to include a Trump adviser, who was not named. And later in his speech, Trump directly focused his sights on Iran, noting its current regime's fueling and funding of terrorism. "This arms deal will enable Saudi Arabia to use USA -made weapons in their war crimes against Yemeni civilians in a brutal civil war, and continue perpetuating human rights atrocities at home and overseas", said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii.

It was closely watched given the anti-Muslim comments by Trump during his presidential campaign and his attempt after his inauguration to institute a temporary US entry ban on nationals and refugees from several Muslim-majority countries, although not including Saudi Arabia.

"The unique piece of it is that every single one of them are signatories on how they're responsible and will actually prosecute the financing of terrorism, including individuals", she said.
