Saudi Arabia has condemned the offensive and racist statements made by an official of the Israeli occupation government against Palestine and its people.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it has confirmed the Kingdom’s position in rejecting these remarks, which are contrary to the truth, and contribute to spreading violence and hate speech, and undermine all efforts made for dialogue and international peace.
The Ministry has renewed Saudi Arabia’s support for all the international efforts aimed to solve to Palestinian issue, on the basis of the Arab peace initiative, and ensuring the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
It is noteworthy that Israel’s Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich made a statement while delivering a speech in Paris, in which he said: “There is no such thing as a Palestinian nation. There is no Palestinian history. There is no Palestinian language.”
