Dubai, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Feb, 2020 ) :Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said Thursday Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had no plans to meet Benjamin Netanyahu, after media reports the Israeli premier was seeking talks.
"Saudi Arabia's policy has been very clear since the beginning of this conflict. There are no relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel and the kingdom stands firmly behind Palestine," the foreign minister said.
However in late January, Prince Faisal told US tv channel CNN that Israeli citizens were not allowed to come to Saudi Arabia, after the Jewish state said it had given its citizens the green light to visit.
When asked about Netanyahu's meeting earlier this month with Sudanese leader General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Prince Faisal said: "Sudan is a sovereign nation. They can assess their own sovereign interests."The Palestine Liberation Organization called the meeting "a stab in the back of the Palestinian people".
