Saudi King tells Trump: any declaration on Jerusalem will harm peace negotiations

In a phone call between US President Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman, the King warned Trump that any American declaration on the status of Jerusalem before a final settlement is reached will harm the peace negotiations and increase tensions.

 

According to the King, the Saudi policy remains unchanged in its support for the Palestinian people and their historic rights. He also stressed how "due to the sensitivity of Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa Mosque, this dangerous step will provoke the sensitivities of Muslims worldwide."
