Washington: The United States has called upon Saudi Arabia to restore ties with Israel.
The adviser to US president and son-in-law, Jared Kishner, has said that it is in the interest of Saudi Arabia to restore relations, like the UAE, with Israel.
The adviser said that Saudi Arabia can weaken its common enemy Iran by establishing ties with Israel.
The move will also be better for the defence of the Gulf state, he added.
Kishner said that it would also be beneficial for the people of Palestine.
