Saudi king: Trump visit a 'turning point'

President of United States Donald Trump, in his address to the Islamic nations, completely ignored Pakistan and termed India as the most affected country by terrorism. "Our missiles are for peace and for defence", he said.

Israel expressed muted concern on Sunday to a major arms deal between the United States and Saudi Arabia announced a day earlier during the visit to the region by U.S. President Donald Trump.

He also said that the US and its regional allies should be aware of the fact that Iran is a "democratic, stable and powerful" country which seeks to fight terrorism and violence and will not change its path because of the USA claims. In his most forceful argument, Trump exhorted Muslim-majority countries to do more to eradicate terrorist groups that claim the mantle of Islam, urging Muslims to "drive out" terrorists. "This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it".

Urging Muslim leaders to do more to fight extremism, the US President said, "The nations of the Middle East can not wait for American power to crush this enemy for them". "Drive them out of your places of worship". Drive them out of your community. "Drive them out of your holy land".

The US President also singled out Iran as promoting a "craven ideology" of terrorism, and called on the Muslim world to help him isolate Iran on an global front.

He said that terrorism must not only be measured by the number of dead, but the number of "vanished dreams".

The rulings have raised the potential of Texas becoming the first state dragged back under federal oversight since the U.S. Greg Abbott , a proponent of transgender bathroom restrictions, has indicated he'll sign the measure into law.

Tillerson said Trump's speech was directed not just to the leaders of Muslim nations, but also to Muslim-Americans of faith.

The First Lady - who has been criticised for not wearing a headscarf during the tour of the Middle East - said she felt honoured to witness the work being done for women at the centre.

Trump left Riyadh for Tel Aviv ahead of talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in hopes of seeking ways to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace.

While King Salman appeared happy to greet the visitors, a Trump tweet from 2015 suggested he would be offended. He said that he expects the visit to herald "a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to all our citizens".
