Saudi Foreign Minister said on Monday that any rapprochement with Israel will come after reaching a just solution to the Palestinian cause, Anadolu News Agency reports.
“The priority now is to find an arrangement so that Israelis and Palestinians can sit together and have a peace process that can be worked on,” Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, said in an interview with Israeli newspaper Maariv, on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
Popular activists and national figures denounced allowing Israeli players to participate in “Jordan Baja International”, stressing that this falls within the framework of the rejected normalization with 'Israel', which carries out provocative and oppressive against Palestinians. pic.twitter.com/s3D75WnCsu

“The integration of Israel in the region will be a huge benefit, not only for Israel itself but for the entire region,” he added.
The top Saudi diplomat said the lack of a political horizon for peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis would “strengthen the most extreme voices” in the region.
There was no confirmation from the Saudi authorities of the interview with the Israeli daily.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly reiterated its commitment to the Arab parameters for peace with Israel, expressed in the 2002 Saudi-proposed Arab Initiative, which calls for normalizing relations with Tel Aviv in return for withdrawal from territories occupied in 1967.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and annexed the entire city in 1980, in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.
