Saudi Arabia’s first ambassador to the Palestinians announced that the Kingdom intends to open a consulate in east Jerusalem.
Saudi Arabia’s first ambassador to the Palestinian Authority, Nayef al-Sudairi, arrived in Ramallah on Tuesday morning, implying in a statement to reporters that the establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital in east Jerusalem would be a central pillar of any future deal with Israel.
