Many obstacles hindering normalization deal with KSA: Israeli media
Israeli media reports suggest that despite progress, there are substantial obstacles to the normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia.
Israeli media outlets have reported that there are still numerous hurdles ahead of a normalization agreement with Saudi Arabia.
Moraya Fulberg, the political affairs commentator on Channel 13, stated, "While we are on the right path, there are still many obstacles in the way, and this poses a significant challenge."
"There are discussions within the security and military establishment, and it is expected that prominent Israeli figures will soon arrive in Washington. Furthermore, the Prime Minister is also expected to visit in November," she explained.
Earlier today, Israeli Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi landed in Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh on Sunday to take part in the fourth extraordinary congress of the Universal Postal Union (UPU).
Yesterday, commenting on the prospective normalization deal, Saudi media reported that negotiations on crucial matters will be a protracted process and that reaching common ground among the negotiating parties is expected to take longer than anticipated.
It was reported that negotiations for establishing relations with "Israel" will unfold in phases, with an additional track focused on creating a conducive atmosphere before realizing the normalization deal.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman admitted that Saudi Arabia was getting closer to normalizing ties with the Israeli occupation in an interview for Fox News released last week.
Responding to a question on the requirements of a normalization deal, the de facto Saudi leader claimed that "the Palestinian issue is very important. We need to solve that par," adding that there had been "good negotiations" so far.
