Normalization with Israel would bring “huge profits” to the region, the Saudi foreign minister said, but such a deal with the kingdom would depend on progress in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
As part of the Abrahamic, Treaty brokered last year by former US President Donald Trump, four Arab countries – the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan – agreed to normalize relations with the Jewish state.
Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said on Thursday that any deal with Saudi Arabia “depends heavily on progress in the peace process”.
“I think normalizing Israel’s status in the region will be of great benefit to the region as a whole,” he told CNN. “This would be very useful both from an economic and social point of view and from a security point of view.”
