The leaders called for an global probe while condemning the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters after the summit.

They will also condemn Iran's interference in the affairs of the Arab states as a stark violation to the global law and will urge Tehran to stop all provocative acts that undermine trust-building efforts and threaten regional stability and security, especially after Iran-backed Houthis escalated firing missiles against Saudi Arabia.

"We stress our absolute condemnation of the use of chemical weapons against the sisterly Syrian people and we demand an independent global investigation to guarantee the application of worldwide law to everyone proven to use chemical weapons", said its final statement.

Speaking to the reporters in Mogadishu, the director of Villa Somalia, Abdinur Mohamed Ahmed said Somali delegates would be holding talks with other Arab leaders.

They discussed the Syrian situation following the suspected chemical attack near the capital city of Damascus on April 7th and the US-led missile strikes against the country on Saturday.

The king said he had named this year's meeting "the Jerusalem summit so that the entire world knows Palestine and its people remain at the heart of Arab concerns".

Military help over the past three years from Russian Federation and Iran, which also backs Lebanon's Hezbollah and Shi'ite Muslim militias in Iraq, has allowed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to crush the rebel threat to topple him.

"We renew our strong condemnation of terrorist acts carried out by Iran in the Arab region, and we reject its blatant interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries", King Salman said at a summit of Arab leaders, without referencing Friday's missile strikes on Syria, according to Reuters.

Discussions during the summit will shed light on the crisis in Syria following a tripartite strike by the US, France and the United Kingdom on several military and research targets in Syria.

The funding announcement came as the king reiterated criticism of President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and shift the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city. Gheit condemned Iranian interference in Bahrain and other Arab countries. Doha denies the charges and says the boycott is an attempt to impinge on its sovereignty.

The summit also agreed on the necessity to secure the Arab World from the dangers terrorism poses and to work on combating terrorism and supporting all security, economic, social, cultural and intellectual means to preserve the Arab World's national security.

While Qatar's emir did not attend the summit, the country's Arab League representative was present at the meeting.

Sheikh Tamim returned to Doha on Saturday from a US trip where he met Trump.

"It's not a big problem", he said.
