Saudi Arabia played a role in the normalization deal between ‘Israel’ and Morocco, as diplomatic sources told Channel 12.
The sources added that the probability of a similar deal between ‘Israel’ and Saudi Arabia in the near future was on the cards.
Also, Saudi Arabia joined forces with the White House to secure normalization deals between ‘Israel’ and other states, with Indonesia and Oman said to be likely to do so.
The process is designed to set the stage for an eventual Israeli-Saudi normalization, which is unlikely to take place in the coming weeks, the sources said.
Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner declared that Israeli-Saudi normalization is an “inevitability,” following Trump’s announcement of Morocco’s decision to normalize ties with ‘Israel’.
“Israel and Saudi Arabia coming together and having full normalization at this point is an inevitability, but the timeframe… is something that has to be worked out,” Kushner said.
He continued, “The biggest prize for Washington would be getting Saudi Arabia to normalize ties with Israel. While this still appears to be some way off.”
Saudi Arabia stated that it supports full normalization with ‘Israel’, however, it said this would only happen after the establishment of a Palestinian state.
