The Saudi FM assured that there is no meeting between the crown prince and the Prime Minister of Israel, AFP reported.
"There is no meeting planned between Saudi Arabia and Israel," Saudi FM Prince Faisal bin Farhan told Saudi-owned Al Arabiya English, responding to the recent reports in Israeli media. "Saudi Arabia’s policy has been very clear since the beginning of this conflict. There are no relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel and the kingdom stands firmly behind Palestine."
Meanwhile, Netanyahu is working to strengthen Israeli ties with a number of Arab states in the absence of a peace deal with the Palestinians.
Earlier this month, he provided a rare meeting with the head of the Sudanese transitional government in Uganda, and then announced that the two countries were normalizing relations.
The meeting was seen as an opportunity for Sudan to use Israel’s position in Washington as a lever to help Khartoum emerge from the international status of the pariah and restore its economy.
