Earlier this week, a US Jewish umbrella group sent a delegation on an official visit to Saudi Arabia. This trip is the first-ever since 1993.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations sent representatives on a four-day visit. The tour included holding meetings with Saudi officials. The delegation met Mohammad al-Issa, the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, who previously led a delegation to Auschwitz.

According to sources, the visit to Saudi Arabia received the blessings of the US president and Prime Minister of Israel Netanyahu.

The visit came due to Saudi Arabia denying normalization with Israel, denying reports that Mohammad bin Salman had plans to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister.

“There is no meeting planned between Saudi Arabia and Israel,” Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin said.

“Saudi Arabia’s policy has been very clear since the beginning of this conflict. There are no relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel and the kingdom stands firmly behind Palestine,” he added.

Unlike most Arab countries, Saudi Arabia does not have a diplomatic relationship with Israel. But Gulf Arab monarchies, which share Israel’s hatred towards Iran, have hinted at developing warmer ties with the Jewish state.

In late January, however, Prince Faisal said that Israelis were not permitted to come to Saudi Arabia. This was after Israel said it had allowed its citizens to visit.
Last month, Saudi Arabia said it admires US President Donald Trump’s efforts on the Middle East ‘peace plan’, which the Palestinians rejected.
