JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia has affirmed that adherence to peace based on the two-state solution according to the Arab peace initiative is a way to find a solution to the Palestinian issue and to end the Arab-Israeli conflict.
This came in the Kingdom’s speech on Tuesday before the UN Security Council session in the open debate on “The situation in the Middle East and North Africa” delivered by the deputy permanent representative of Saudi Arabia to the UN, Dr. Khalid Manzlawi.
“The Palestinian people have suffered a long period of unjust occupation, oppressive and racist policies of oppression and illegal settlement incursions,” Manzlawi said, adding that Saudi Arabia is still in solidarity with the Palestinian cause. A donation of $50 million was provided by the Kingdom to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees during the 29th Arab Summit (Jerusalem Summit) held in Dhahran.
