(Haaretz) Saudi Arabia and other key Arab countries have told the Trump administration they won’t be able to support its plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace if it doesn’t include a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem.
The Saudi position was first reported by Reuters on Sunday, and was later confirmed to Haaretz by two diplomats involved in conversations on the peace plan.
Saudis are said to be participating in Trump’s economic portion of the Israeli-Palestinian #peaceplan. But Saudis coming up with a “big payment to the #Palestinians” and then peace breaking out “seems unrealistic on its face,” according to @RBLeBaron: pic.twitter.com/uXcFyDcxIl
