RIYADH, Feb 29, 2015:
Saudi Arabia has reportedly agreed to let Israel use its airspace to attack Iran if necessary, in exchange for “some kind of progress” on the Palestinian issue, Israel’s Channel 2 TV station quoted an unnamed European official as saying.
“The Saudis have declared their readiness for the Israeli Air Force to overfly Saudi air space en route to attack Iran if an attack is necessary,” the report quoted by RT News stated.
In return for cooperation, Saudi Arabia wants to see some“progress” on the Palestinian issue, the report added.
The move will reportedly allow Israel to bomb targets in Iran by offering a short-cut, which will save fuel and time.
The Saudi position was confirmed during multiple diplomatic talks, according to the TV report.
“The Saudi authorities are completely coordinated with Israel on all matters related to Iran,” the European official from Brussels was quoted by RT News, as saying.
