RIYADH, Jan 28 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has viewed the US Administration's announcement of its peace plan titled: "Vision for Peace, Prosperity, and a Brighter Future."
"In light of the announcement, the Kingdom reiterates its support for all efforts aimed at reaching a just and comprehensive resolution to the Palestinian cause," the ministry said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
Since the time of the Founder King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al-Saud, and through the reign of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been at the forefront of the efforts in support of the brotherly Palestinian people, and in standing by their side in all international forums to attain their legitimate rights.
Among these efforts was the presentation of the Arab Peace Initiative in 2002, which stressed, in clear terms, that a military solution to the conflict has not brought peace or security to any party, and the comprehensive and just peace is a strategic option, according to the statement.
The Kingdom appreciates the efforts of President Trump's Administration to develop a comprehensive peace plan between the Palestinian and the Israeli sides, and encourages the start of direct peace negotiations between the Palestinian and Israeli sides, under the auspices of the United States, and to resolve any disagreements with aspects of the plan in order to reach an agreement that achieves the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, it added.
