He stated: “We are working on this goal in parallel to stop the Iranian threat, as these two goals are interconnected,” stressing that “if these goals are achieved, it will be a quantum leap.”

“In the same way, there could be an oil pipeline stretching from the Arabian Peninsula to our ports in the Mediterranean, which will save seven days of sea travel,” he added.

Regarding the political outcome of the normalization of Saudi-Israeli relations, Netanyahu said: “Israel will not be an isolated country in the eastern Mediterranean, surrounded by countries that are not allies, but rather a country that lives at peace in an effective geopolitical alliance with major Arab countries. countries in one of the most challenging regions in the world.” And this can finally end our conflict with the Palestinians.”
