Saudi Arabia

    Saudi Arabia will not “directly or indirectly engage Israel” until the latter abandons all the land it captured in the 1967 Six-Day War, a top member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family has noted.

    “For us to take any steps toward any form of normalization with the Israeli state before these Arab lands have been returned to their rightful legitimate owners would undermine international law and turn a blind eye to immorality,” Prince Turki al-Faisal said before a gathering at U.S.-based think tank Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
