Saudi Arabia must develop solutions for the Palestinian people

The Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, stressed during a dialogue session, today, Monday, at the World Economic Forum held in Riyadh, the necessity of “developing comprehensive solutions to the Palestinian situation.”
The Saudi Foreign Minister said, “The United Nations estimates that Gaza will be reconstructed in 30 years,” adding: “We cannot ignore what the Palestinians are suffering in the West Bank.”
Prince Faisal bin Farhan continued: “We need a credible and irreversible path to establishing a Palestinian state.”
In another context, Prince Faisal bin Farhan said that it is expected “in the near future” to conclude bilateral agreements between the Kingdom and the United States, while answering a question about negotiations between the two countries regarding a security agreement.
He added: “Most of the work has already been accomplished. We have broad outlines of what we believe should happen on the Palestinian front.”
For his part, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi said during the same session that “the Israeli government is led by an ideology that does not believe in the two-state solution.”
He added: “Israel says publicly that it does not want a two-state solution and rejects international resolutions,” explaining that “Israeli settlement kills the two-state solution.”
The Jordanian Foreign Minister also believed that “the world must confront (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu and not allow him to drag the region into war.”
Al-Safadi considered that “the establishment of a Palestinian state makes what Hamas supports irrelevant in expressions,” adding: “We will tell Hamas to release the hostages if Israel stops firing first.”
The Jordanian Foreign Minister also believed that “any approach in Gaza must be part of a comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue.”
For his part, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said during the session that “what must be done is a two-state solution and preventing the spiral of violence from expanding.”
He revealed that Egypt presented “a proposal on the table before Israel and Hamas that would lead to a ceasefire,” adding: “We urge Israel and Hamas to make concessions.”
