Saudi King Salman reaffirmed support for Palestinians to U.S. President Donald Trump, state media said Tuesday, after his son and heir apparent said Israel has a "right" to a homeland.The king also emphasized the need to advance the Middle East peace process in a phone call with Trump, which came after Israeli forces killed 18 Palestinians last week during a demonstration on its border with Gaza.It has maintained for years that normalizing relations hinges on Israel's withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war – territory Palestinians seek for a future state.Since 2002, Saudi Arabia has been the main sponsor of the Arab Peace Initiative, which envisions a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
