Saudi Denies Talks Between Benjamin Netanyahu And Crown Prince During Pompeo Visit

On Monday, Saudi Arabia denied Israeli media reports about the talk between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during visit US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan said in a tweet: “I have seen press reports about a purported meeting between HRH the Crown Prince and Israeli officials during the recent visit by @SecPompeo.”

“No such meeting occurred. The only officials present were American and Saudi.”

Israeli public broadcaster Kan and other outlets had reported that the meeting took place Sunday, weeks after the Jewish state reached historic deals to normalise ties with two Saudi allies, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Kan’s diplomatic correspondent said that Pompeo, who was in Israel last week before travelling onto Saudi during a regional tour, was also at the reported talks in the planned Red Sea city of NEOM.
