"Now, that normalisation in the region can only be successful if we address the issue of the Palestinians and if we are able to deliver a Palestinian state within the 1967 border that gives the Palestinians dignity and their rights," he said.

The Arab Initiative was proposed during the Arab League summit in Beirut in 2002, at the peak of the Second Intifada. It demands Israel withdraw from the West Bank and Gaza Strip, which it occupied in 1967, and allow for the establishment of a Palestinian state in return for normalisation deals with Arab states.

Israel has long rejected engaging with the Arab Initiative. Last year, the scheme was essentially killed off completely by close Saudi ally the United Arab Emirates normalising ties with Israel, with the assistance of the Trump administration.
