RIYADH — Saudi Arabia has rejected Israeli plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank and put it under Israeli sovereignty.

In a statement carried by Saudi Press Agency on Thursday, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Ministry stressed the Kingdom’s condemnation of any unilateral measures, and of any violations of United Nations Security Council resolutions, and of all that might undermine the chances of resuming the peace process to achieve security and stability in the region.

The ministry reaffirmed the “Kingdom’s steadfast stance toward the brotherly Palestinian people, and support for its choices, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital.”

Saudi Arabia also affirmed its “support for efforts to advance negotiations in accordance with the international laws, to reach a just and comprehensive solution that meets the aspirations of the Palestinian brotherly people.”
