Saudi Arabia says, we will not follow the UAE in establishing diplomatic relations with Israel

 

Saudi Arabia says we will not follow the UAE in establishing diplomatic relations with Israel unless they signs an internationally recognized peace agreement with the Palestinians.


The UAE last week became the first Gulf state who will start diplomatic relations with Israel, under the US agreement that raised the possibility of similar deals with other Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia.

But after days of silence, and of US pressure to announce a similar deal of UAE, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan ruled out the possibility of agreement with Israel until the Palestinian issue is resolved according to Palestinians demand.

Prince Faisal told reporters during a visit to Berlin on Wednesday that in order to normalize relations, "peace with the Palestinians must be achieved" on the basis of international agreements.

"Everything is possible once it is achieved," he added, this is Saudi Arabia's previous position on the Palestine issue.

US President Donald Trump has said he expects Saudi Arabia to join the deal announced last week by Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Which will normalize diplomatic relations and establish a broader relationship.

Donald Trump said,  I am expecting that, when he was asked at a White House news conference Wednesday, does he expects that Saudi Arabia will join the agreement?.


Under the deal, backed by Trump, Israel agreed to suspend its occupation of the occupied West Bank. The deal also opposes regional power Iran, which the United Arab Emirates, Israel and the United States see as a major threat to the Middle East.

Prince Faisal said the state was committed to peace with Israel based on the 2002 Arab peace initiative. He criticized Israel's "unilateral policies" of annexation and construction of settlements in the occupied West Bank as "illegal" and "harmful" to a two-state solution. But he also expressed cautious optimism about the agreement of the last week. "All efforts to prevent the risk of affiliation can be considered positive," he said.

Saudi Arabia, which does not recognize Israel, launched a 2002 initiative in which Arab nations offered to settle relations with Israel in exchange for a state treaty with the Palestinians. Due to the 2002 initiative Israel should withdraw completely from the occupied territories. they occupied these territories in 1967 illegally.
