On Monday, the Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation held a meeting in Jeddah to discuss the organization’s position on the US peace plan in the Middle East announced by President Donald Trump last week.
This meeting came two days after a previous meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo, who rejected the plan, stressing their adherence to the rights of the Palestinian people, while Secretary of the Executive Committee of the PLO Saeb Erekat praised this position, saying that “the Arab consensus on the position of the Palestinian leadership is a great victory.” “.
It is noteworthy that Saudi Arabia reiterated, last week, its support for all efforts aimed at reaching a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue. In a statement issued by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Riyadh affirmed its appreciation for the efforts of the US President’s administration to develop a peace plan between the Palestinian and Israeli sides.
It also encouraged the start of direct peace negotiations between the Palestinian and Israeli sides under the auspices of Washington.
