Saudi Arabia says it supports the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the borders before the 1967 Middle East war, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Foreign Minister Prince Faisal Bin Farhan told an Arab League meeting on today it supports all efforts to reach a comprehensive solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
According to a statement released by the Saudi foreign ministry, the remarks made by Faisal Bin Farhan included no direct mention of a normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
During the 1967 war, Israel captured territory including the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which it still occupies.
Announced on 13 August, the UAE-Israel accord was the first such accommodation between an Arab country and Israel in more than 20 years.
