Bin Salman makes an unprecedented statement about Israel
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in an interview that Israelis have the right to live on their land in peace, stressing the importance of reaching a peace agreement to ensure stability for all.
"The Israelis have the right to live in peace on their own land," Bin Salman said in an interview published in the American magazine The Atlantic, while another public indication that the ties between Riyadh and Tel Aviv appear to be closer, the magazine said.
"I think the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land, but we have to reach a peace agreement," he said. To ensure stability for all and to establish normal relations. "
"We have religious concerns about the fate of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and about the rights of the Palestinian people," said the Saudi crown prince. "We have no objection to any other people."
Saudi Arabia has not recognized Israel and has insisted for years that the normalization of relations is conditional on Israel's withdrawal from the Arab territories occupied since the 1967 war, including the lands the Palestinians want to establish their state.
