AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Zionist Transport Minister Merav Michaeli revealed “ongoing work” with Saudi Arabia to normalize relations between the two countries, media outlets reported.
“Work is underway with Saudi Arabia regarding the overflight of Israeli aircraft over its territory, which may reduce the flight time as part of the normalization process,” the minister said .
Michaeli pointed out that no results can be expected at this time, “but work is in progress.”
She continued: “I, who believes in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a regional settlement, try to use transportation for this, which is a very important tool to strengthen these relations.”
Michaeli’s remarks come five days after Israel Hayom reported on a trilateral deal that it said was being formed among Israel, Saudi Arabia and the US, representing a new step towards normalizing relations between Tel Aviv and Riyadh.
