India Too a Victim of Terrorism, Says Donald Trump in Saudi Arabia

05 June, 2017

According to the sovereign, the ruling powers in the Islamic republic represent "the spearhead of global terrorism" and the responsibility 'before God, our people and the whole world is to stand united to face the forces of the devil and extremism wherever they are'. "Drive them out of your holy land, and drive them out of this Earth".

Speaking at the Arab-Islamic-US summit, without naming Pakistan, Trump asked countries to ensure that terror groups don't find sanctuaries on their soil. Tillerson referred to the visit as "a moment in time" and suggested that the US would take a more active role in the future in brokering a deal if both sides make serious commitments.

"If we can change the conversation in the Islamic world from enmity towards the partnership with the USA, and if we can change the conversation in the USA and the West away from enmity toward the Islamic world toward a partnership, we will have changed our world", Saudi Foreign Minister Abel al-Jubeir told reporters Saturday.

As a candidate, Trump proposed temporarily banning Muslims from entering the United States.

Trump was in Saudi Arabia on the first leg of his first foreign tour, which also includes stops in Israel, the Vatican, Belgium and Italy over the coming days.

Trump used his visit to Riyadh to bolster U.S. ties with Arab and Islamic nations, announce $US110 billion in USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia, sending Iran a tough message.

He praised Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, telling him, "You have done a tremendous job under trying circumstances". "Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes".

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Monday he was heartened by the absence of even a single protester during President Donald Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia over the weekend. The Washington Post said the probe had reached into the White House to include a Trump adviser, who was not named.

Iran and Saudi Arabia have long accused each other of sponsoring militias aligned to their competing sects of Islam in conflicts across the Middle East.

He put the onus for combating terrorism on the region.

Israel has expressed concern over the U.S. -Saudi $110 billion arms deal, sealed at the Riyadh Summit. The TFTC now consists of Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and of course, the USA and Saudi Arabia.

He said relations between the two countries will advance from a partnership to the "level of strengthening consultations, cooperation and coordination on all fronts". Some Palestinians said they were disappointed by the omission.
