Gaza25Dec10RIYADH (PNIC):-Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed ben Salman asked Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to back a US-sponsored peace plan for Israel-Palestine, officials told PNIC.

Abbas was invited to Saudi Arabia’s capital of Riyadh, on Tuesday, where he held talks with King Salman and MbS.

The invitation came shortly following a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, where Abbas announced that he would no longer accept the US as a broker in the peace process.

However, on Tuesday, Ben Salman told Abbas that the US was “the only game in town” with regards to the peace process.

“The US is the only one with real influence on Israel, it’s the only country that can put pressure on Israel in any peace process and no one else can do [that], neither EU, nor Russia or China,” Ben Salman told Abbas, according to Palestinian officials with knowledge of the meeting.

Ben Salman told Abbas in a previous visit, early this month, that the US was “preparing for a peace deal, and this deal might not look good at the beginning but at the end it will be good.”

He also asked Abbas, at the time, to have the Palestinians in Lebanon align with the pro-Saudi camp and stay away from the pro-Iranian camp led by Hezbollah, the officials said.

“At some point, Ben Salman warned Abbas that, if he doesn’t do the job in Lebanon, there are others who can do it, pointing to Mohammed Dahlan,” one official told MEE, referring to the dissident Fatah politician.
