c_330_235_16777215_0___images_stories_edim_Faisal99.jpgIsrael's official state radio has reported that a "historic meeting" was held between Israeli and Saudi diplomats on the sidelines of the World Policy Conference in Monaco.
According to the report, Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former intelligence minister who previously served as the Saudi ambassador to the United States, shook hands with Israel's former ambassador to Washington Itamar Rabinovich and Knesset member Meir Shitrit.
Prince Faisal has urged Israel to accept the Saudi peace initiative, but reportedly declined an invitation from MK Shitrit to deliver a speech before the Knesset, saying that such a move is futile as long as Israel refuses to adopt the peace initiative.
In late November, a new evidence of the "Israeli"-Saudi rapprochement emerged in which some high-ranking Saudi officials met with "Israelis".
The video showed Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal, who was the then head of the kingdom's National Intelligence Agency, meeting a senior "Israeli" official, in the presence of a professor from the Department of Islamic Studies at U.S. George Town University.
According to the video, the Saudi prince and the Israeli official, Yossi Alpher, discussed how to deal with political Islam in the Arab region.
According to the previous reports, Saudi Arabia has given a green light to the "Israelis" in order to use its airspace in any military strike Tel Aviv decides to wage against Iran.
