Al-Jubeir was responding to questions from broadcaster France 24 about US proposals for economic development as part of the Middle East peace process.
“I think anything that improves the situation of the Palestinian people is something that should be welcomed. Now having said that the political process is extremely important,” he said in an interview.
“The Palestinians are the ones who have the ultimate decision in this, because it’s their issue and so whatever the Palestinians accept I believe everybody else will accept,” he added.
Saudi Arabia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs said Riyadh continued to support a political process based on an independent Palestinian state along the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
