RAMALLAH, Tuesday, September 8, 2020 (WAFA) - Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh affirmed today that the Arab Peace Initiative is the reference set by Arabs to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict, stressing that any retreat from this initiative is a weakening of the Arab-Palestinian position.

He called on Muscat to play a role in a constructive Arab dialogue in order to restore the Arab unity regarding various issues, particularly the Palestinian issue, and to develop a clear and joint Arab strategy to address these issues.

For his part, al-Said affirmed his country’s continued support to the Palestinian issue and rights, stating that the position of Oman and its Sultan is clear; “the Palestinian issue is our issue.”
