There can be no normalization of ties with Israel without resolving the Palestinian issue, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister tells CNN in an interview airing today.

Asked if there could be no normal ties without a path to a credible and irreversible Palestinian state, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud tells CNN: “That’s the only way we’re going to get the benefit. So, yes, because we need stability and only stability will come through the resolving the Palestinian issue.”
