Riyadh working with Trump to push peace process: FM
Saudi officials are talking with US administration to forge 'comprehensive' Israel-Palestine settlement

By Ahmed al-Masry

DOHA, Qatar (AA) - Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Thursday said his country was working with the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump with a view to pushing the Middle East peace process forward.

Al-Jubeir made the assertion in a speech delivered before EU officials in Brussels.

According to Riyadh’s top diplomat, Saudi officials are currently holding talks with the Trump administration in hopes of hammering out a “comprehensive” settlement between Israel and the Palestinians.

“The best way to resolve the dispute is to present negotiators with a comprehensive -- rather than - partial -- peace package,” al-Jubeir said.

Such a package, he added, should address all outstanding issues of contention, including settlements, borders and refugees.

Stressing the deep historical importance of Jerusalem, al-Jubeir said Riyadh was “looking forward” to hearing the U.S. administration’s feedback regarding its proposals.

Last December, Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, triggering widespread condemnation and protest across the Arab and Muslim world.

Following the controversial move, the Palestinian leadership vowed to eschew Washington's traditional role as peace broker.
