Days after the Arab League rejected President Donald Trump's efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, representatives from these countries and other Muslim nations gathered in Saudi Arabia and rejected the White House's plan as "biased".
Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said the kingdom backs efforts that push for negotiations, but said such initiatives must reach a fair resolution that ensures the rights of the Palestinian people "through the creation of an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital".
He spoke at a gathering of the 57-nation Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which denounced Trump's plan.
