7 February, 12:20

On Wednesday, the official Riyadh announced that Saudi Arabia would not have diplomatic relations with Israel without the creation of an independent Palestinian state. 

"The Kingdom has informed the US administration of its firm position that there will be no diplomatic relations with Israel until an independent Palestinian state is recognized within the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital," the Saudi Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Another condition would be that "Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip ceases and all Israeli occupation forces withdraw from the Gaza Strip," the statement said.
