Saudi FM calls for independent Palestinian state, censures ‘blatant violations’ by Israel

Saudi Arabia, (The Palestine Information Centre)The Saudi foreign minister, Faisal bin Farhan, in his speech at the UN General Assembly, has called for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state and demanded an end to relentless violations of international law by the Israeli regime.

The top Saudi diplomat stressed in a speech to the 78th session of the General Assembly in New York that there can be no durable peace and stability in the Middle East until a just solution to the Palestinian plight is found.

“The stability of the region rests on a just and comprehensive solution for the Palestinian cause,” he said, and “the establishment of a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders with East al-Quds as its capital.”

Bin Farhan said that his country, “rejects and condemns all the unilateral steps that constitute a blatant violation of international laws and which contribute to the collapse of regional and international peace efforts and are hindering the path of diplomatic solutions.”

The UN speech comes amid growing speculations over a potential US-mediated normalization deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel

Palestinian issue still very important to Saudi Arabia: MBS 

In an interview with right-wing US media channel, Fox News on Wednesday, Crown Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) said the Palestinian issue still remains very important to Saudi Arabia.

Bin Salman told Fox’s Special Report program that the Palestinian issue was “very important” to Riyadh. “We need to solve that part,” he said when asked what it would take to get a normalization deal.

Riyadh has reportedly demanded Israeli concessions to Palestinians that nevertheless fall short of giving them an independent state.

US President Joe Biden’s administration in recent months has pressed ahead with an effort to broker a Saudi-Israeli deal.

Saudi Arabia has reportedly informed the United States of its decision to suspend all negotiations on normalizing ties with Israel due to the far-right Israeli cabinet’s unwillingness to make any concessions to the Palestinians.

The London-based Elaph online newspaper, citing an Israeli official, reported last Sunday that Washington had informed Tel Aviv of Riyadh’s stance that the “extremist” nature of the occupying regime led by Netanyahu is “torpedoing any possibility of rapprochement with the Palestinians, and therefore with the Saudis.”
