Katz calls for full Saudi ties, says Netanyahu should visit Riyadh

Transportation and Intelligence Minister Israel Katz calls for fully normalized ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and calls on Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Riyadh for an official visit.

“I call upon Salman, the Saudi King, to invite prime minister of Israel Netanyahu to visit Saudi Arabia,” Katz says at the annual Herzliya security conference near Tel Aviv. “The Palestinians have no veto power when it comes to normalizing ties with the Gulf.”

Katz goes on to invite the newly appointed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Israel, promising that he would be a “very welcome guest” in the Jewish state.
