Arab nations reaffirm support for Palestinians in US peace plan

Saudi Arabia and other key Arab countries have told the Trump administration they won't be able to support its plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace, if it doesn't include a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem.

The position was expressed by Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, during recent communications with senior US officials, as well as in conversations with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and other Arab leaders in the region. King Salman reaffirmed that Saudi Arabia will continue maintaining its commitments in the Arab Peace Initiative drawn up by Saudi Arabia in 2002, which supports the establishment of a Palestinian state defined by a pre-1967 border, with its capital positioned in East Jerusalem.
