NNA - The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud made a telephone call today to President Mahmoud Abbas of the State of Palestine.
During the call, the King reiterated the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's condemnation and categorical rejection of the Israeli Prime Minister's declaration on his intention to annex lands from the West Bank occupied since 1967.
The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques affirmed that this announcement is a very dangerous escalation against the Palestinian people and a flagrant violation of the Charter of the United Nations and international norms, and that the Israeli attempt to impose a fait accompli will not obscure the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
For his part, President Mahmoud Abbas appreciated the keenness and care of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques on the Palestinian cause and Saudi Arabia's permanent and firm stances towards Palestine and its people in various regional and international summits and forums.
He praised the Kingdom's call for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the level of foreign ministers to discuss this issue and review attitudes towards Israel to confront this declaration, take the necessary measures and draw up an urgent action plan towards it. He also praised the statement issued by the Kingdom and its position on clarifying things.
