Saudi Arabia Considers Netanyahu’s Annexation Pledge ‘Very Dangerous Escalation’

  • Government

Saudi Arabia has condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s announcement of his intention to annex parts of the occupied West Bank if he wins an upcoming election, describing the measure as “baseless.”



The Kingdom called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation foreign ministers to discuss the move, the Royal Court announced.

The Royal Court statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said it considered Netanyahu’s declaration a “very dangerous escalation against the Palestinians” and said it “violated international law.”

The statement added that it “would undermine any efforts to achieve peace”.



It urged the international community to “condemn and reject the declaration and to consider any action resulting from it as void”.
