Saudi Arabia informed Washington that it’s stopping normalization talks with Israel


Saudi Arabia informed the US administration to stop any discussions with it related to normalization with Israel.

The Israeli government previously believed that Saudi Arabia would normalize relations without linking the relationship to the Palestinian issue.

The information indicated that the Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs, Ron Dermer, who is close to Netanyahu and who was ambassador to Washington, “leaked fabricated news to the Wall Street Journal, what was described as secret meetings between Saudi Arabia and Israel.

The Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was extremely angry that something like this was leaked, regardless of whether it was true or not.

Last March, Iran and Saudi Arabia announced, in a joint statement, the agreement to resume dialogue and diplomatic relations, and to reopen the embassies in the two countries, in response to an initiative by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

This agreement raised Israeli fears, regarding the Iranian progress in the Middle East, and saw that could cause damage to Israel.
