The meeting took place on March 27, just days before the Israeli military killed at least 16 Palestinians during the first Land Day protest near the Gaza-Israel border.

According to a report published on Axios, bin Salman said:
“In the last several decades the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all the peace proposals it was given. It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining.”

Bin Salman reportedly said Saudi Arabia has “much more urgent and important issues to deal with” than supporting the Palestinian cause, like facing Iran’s supposed increasing influence on the region.
"One of the ways to confront Iran is to provoke inexperienced rulers of the region, Khamenei said, in an apparent reference to Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Salman." https://t.co/uR2sFSzq4o

As relations between the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia get closer, Palestinians seem to have less faith in a solution sponsored by the Saudis or most of the other Arab countries, which rely on political and economic support from Riyadh.
