Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said Israel could become “a potential ally” if the conflict with the Palestinians is resolved, Saudi state news agency (SPA) reported on Thursday.

“We look at Israel as a potential ally but before that it should solve its problems with the Palestinians,” said Salman, reported Reuters.

Salman also said that the country could decrease investments in the United States.

“In the same way we have the possibility of boosting our interests, we have the possibility of reducing them,” he said, according to SPA.

Separately, Salman said in remarks to The Atlantic, carried by SPA, that his country wants to continue “detailed talks” with Iran to reach an agreement.

“Iran is a neighbor forever, we cannot get rid of them, and they cannot get rid of us,” he said, according to SPA.
