Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Arab countries not to reject the Trump peace plan before its introduction.

Netanyahu's comments to Arab leaders at the last week's conference in Warsaw were posted on a secret clip released by KAN Nevs on Sunday morning.
"We will wait to see what the plan will look like after the Israeli elections," Netanyahu said. "As you can imagine, it takes a little time now. We are waiting for the presentation of this plan.

"I do not think that any of us should reject the US administration's plan before it is presented."

Netanyahu told Arab leaders during the same meeting that Israel knew that peace was a "one-way street".

"In order for Israel to be in peace or normalize relations with the wider Arab world, we must have Israel and the Palestinian peace," he said. "Since peace has not arrived, we are left without options."

But, the Prime Minister said, it is starting to change.

"Of course, if we make progress and have formal peace with the Palestinians, it will help us with the Arab world," Netanyahu said, "and I would say with parts of the Muslim world. and we are talking about organizing the ability to move to the Middle East, to fly countries in the Middle East, to have economic relations – it in fact contributes to achieving broad peace and Israeli-Palestinian peace, "the Prime Minister said.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir replied that resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would go a long way to "reduce emotions and set the stage for stronger co-operation for countries in the region."
