Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman called for the establishment of an internationally recognized Palestinian state. This came during his speech at the Arab League Summit in Manama on Thursday.

In his statement, the Crown Prince stressed that Saudi Arabia prioritized Arab issues and strengthened joint Arab action. It focused on formulating common positions on regional and international matters, particularly the Palestinian cause.  

The Crown Prince highlighted the fundraising campaign launched by the Kingdom which exceeded SAR700 million to support the Palestinians.

"The Kingdom also operated air and sea bridges to deliver aid directly to Gaza and pledged continued support to international organizations working to alleviate the tragic situation there."

He further emphasized the need for continued collaboration to confront the brutal aggression against Palestine, urging the international community to fulfil its responsibility by demanding an immediate cessation of aggression from the occupying forces and ensuring the delivery of humanitarian aid.

"We stress the importance of pursuing a just and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian issue based on UN legitimate resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative, guaranteeing the Palestinian people's right to establish an independent state within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital," SPA quoted the Crown Prince as saying.

Also, the Crown Prince said the Kingdom advocates peaceful conflict resolution, and emphasizes the critical importance of maintaining security in the Red Sea.

"Freedom of navigation in this vital waterway is an international imperative that serves the interests of the entire world. We call for the immediate cessation of any activity threatening maritime navigation's security and safety," the Crown Prince said.

In his closing statement, he affirmed that joint work can achieve sustainable development and prosperity, fulfilling the hopes and aspirations of the people across the Arab region. He also congratulated Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa on assuming the presidency of the 33rd Arab Summit.
