(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Donald Trump’s administration has been trying to normalize relations between Israel and other Middle Eastern countries throughout his presidency. Saudi Arabia has been one of the biggest obstacles. The two countries have been foes for many years, but the US president may have made progress in bringing them together.
On November 22, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. But there was reportedly a third party involved: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. A top Saudi official claims the three diplomats met for a meeting that lasted a few hours to discuss normalizing relations and what to do about Iran.
News of the alleged meeting spread like wildfire. However, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan al Saud said it never happened.
I have seen press reports about a purported meeting between HRH the Crown Prince and Israeli officials during the recent visit by @SecPompeo. No such meeting occurred. The only officials present were American and Saudi.

Netanyahu did not confirm or deny the meeting took place, and neither has Pompeo. If it did, it would be a historical moment for the prospect of peace in the region.
