Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman [MBS] said in a closed-door meeting that Palestinians should accept peace negotiations or "shut up and stop complaining," according to "Israeli" Channel 10 journalist Barak Ravid.
MBS reportedly made the remarks when speaking with leaders of several Jewish groups while in New York on March 27.
"In the last several decades the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all the peace proposals it was given," MBS said according to a wire sent by the Zionist consulate in New York to the "Israeli" entity's so-called foreign ministry in occupied al-Quds that summarized the meeting, as well as information from several US and "Israeli" diplomats with knowledge of the meeting.
"It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining," he continued.
A month earlier, MBS told The Atlantic: "I believe the Palestinians and the "Israelis" have the right to have their own land."
"The Palestinian issue is not a top priority for the Saudi government or for the Saudi public," he said. "There are much more urgent and important issues to deal with."
