(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A Saudi Arabian delegation recently flew to Israel for meetings with high-ranking Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iran’s Fars news agency reported, citing Palestinian sources.
Fars also reported that Saudi representatives recently met with Israeli officials in Monaco. The Iranian report cited an “Israeli radio” report that Saudi Deputy Defense Minister Salman bin Sultan visited Israel and toured an army base along with members of the Israel Defense Forces.
Israel did not respond to the Fars report. Israel and Saudi Arabia were among the staunchest international opponents to November’s interim Iran nuclear deal.
“Israel and Saudi Arabia agree on most things, they could almost have a silent partnership. They don’t have to acknowledge it,” Dr. Fouad Ajami, a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, recently told JNS.org.
