Saudi Arabia to Palestine: We Accept What You Accept in Peace Deal


On Monday, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz declared that the Kingdom would not endorse any peace deal which did not address the status of Jerusalem or the right of return.

King Salman has reportedly given private assurances to Palestinian Authority (PA) President, Mahmoud Abbas, promising that “we will not abandon you… We accept what you accept and we reject what you reject,” the Palestinian Ambassador to Riyadh, Basem Al-Agha, told Reuters.




Contrastingly, in April, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman stated in a meeting of U.S.-based Jewish groups that “it is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining.”

However, a senior Arab diplomat in Riyadh was cited by Reuters as saying “in Saudi Arabia, the king is the one who decides on this issue now, not the crown prince.”

Al-Agha further explained that King Salman’s decision to name the 2018 Arab League conference “The Jerusalem Summit” as well as donate US$200 million in aid to Palestinians were indications that “Jerusalem and refugees were back on the table.”



Last week, Saudi Arabia offered an additional US$80 million to the PA to show “the solid ties between the two governments and the close relationship between the two countries’ leaders.”
