Saudi Arabia has called for a just solution to the Palestinian cause to guarantee security in the Middle East region.

Iran PressWest Asia: “The security of the Middle East region necessitates the expedited pursuit of a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue,” Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said in a speech to the 78th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

“This solution should be built upon the foundation of international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, guaranteeing the Palestinian people's right to establish their independent state based on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital,” he added.

The top Saudi diplomat reiterated the kingdom’s rejection and condemnation of “all unilateral actions, considered violations and blatant breaches of all international laws.”

“These actions contribute to undermining regional and international peace efforts and hinder the paths of political solutions,” he added.

The UN speech came amid growing speculations over a potential US-mediated normalization deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel.
