Saudi Ambassador, Nayef al-Sudairi, met with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh in the Israeli occupied West Bank city of Ramallah on Wednesday.

Al-Sudairi is on a two-day visit which Palestinians described as a “historic milestone” amid US-led efforts to forge diplomatic ties between Israel and the Kingdom.

On Tuesday, al-Sudairi met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, when he presented his credentials to fulfill the role as ambassador and a General consul in Jerusalem to the Palestinians, a role created only last month.
