In his remarks at the United Nations General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu predicted normalization between the Jewish State and Saudi Arabia and said that although such a peace would benefit the Palestinians too, the latter should not have a veto.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, was asked about those remarks during a press briefing on Friday. She appeared to disagree with Netanyahu.
“Look, a normalization agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia will include a serious component dealing with the fundamental issue between Israeli and Palestinian. This is to your question,” she said.
“But I certainly don’t want to get ahead of a process,” she added. “There’s a lot of legwork to be done. And don’t have a formal framework. And so, we’re going to work through it.”
