An Israeli-Palestinian peace process would pave the way for Israel to have additional normalized ties with the Arab world, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud told the Munich Security Conference on Saturday night. “The priority now needs to be on finding a path for the Israelis and Palestinians to sit together to have a workable peace process,” Faisal said.

“If that is the case, that will certainly ease [the path] for all of those states that have not yet had relations with Israel to engage,” he said. “But before that happens, the focus needs to be on the Palestinian issue and finding a just resolution for that issue.” The prince spoke positively of an eventual normalization of ties with the Jewish state.

“An Israel fully integrated into the region will deliver huge benefits – not just for Israel but to the region,” Faisal said. He cautioned however, that “without addressing the core issue of the Palestinian people… we will continue to have instability; we will continue to have risks to Israel’s security and the region as a whole.”
