Jerusalem24 – The Israeli news paper, Jerusalem Post, quoted Israeli officials that Saudi Arabia will announce normalization with Israel within the next 12 months.
The officials made clear that normalization would not take place in the first months of US President Joe Biden’s term, but they expressed their belief that recent peace steps in the Middle East would strengthen the process. Israeli Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen said last week that any deal could be achieved during the coming year with Saudi Arabia, but he did not clearly indicate the intended date until the end of 2021.
It is noteworthy that the media reported on November 23, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia in the presence of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
For its part, “The Jerusalem Post” revealed that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had also visited Israel in the past.
