İrem UZUN -TDO- According to the news report from Al-Jazeera, Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz told United States President Donald Trump that the Gulf country wanted to see a fair and permanent solution for the Palestinians, which was the starting point for its 2002 Arab Peace Initiative.
The kingdom's state news agency reported on Monday, the two leaders spoke by phone following a U.S.-brokered accord last month under which the United Arab Emirates agreed to become the third Arab state after Egypt and Jordan to normalize ties with Israel. Under the proposal, Arab nations have offered Israel normalized ties in return for a statehood deal with the Palestinians and full Israeli withdrawal from territory captured in the 1967 Middle East war. However, this month the kingdom said it would allow flights between the UAE and Israel, including by Israeli airliners, to use its airspace.
According to the reports, the conversation featured a discussion of "ways to enhance regional security and prosperity" with an emphasis on the significance of the UAE-Israel agreement on the normalization of relations, known as the Abraham Accord. White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner has said he hopes another Arab country normalizes ties with within months. No other Arab state has said so far it is considering following the UAE.
