No senior Saudi official had ever explicitly acknowledged Israel's right to its own homeland. The kingdom's 32-year-old de facto leader changed that when asked about his views on Israel in a US interview.
Israel has a "right" to a homeland alongside the Palestinians, Saudi Arabia's influential crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, said on Monday in an interview with US magazine The Atlantic.
Asked whether the "Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland," bin Salman said: "I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land."
