The following states from the region offered support for the effort to open negotiations.
Saudi Arabia's King Salman reassured the Kingdom's commitment to the
Palestinian issue and Palestinian rights, in a phone call with
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the Saudi state news agency
reported early on Wednesday.
The foreign ministry said in a statement that it "appreciates the
efforts of President Trump's administration to develop a comprehensive
peace plan" and also called for the start of "direct peace negotiation
between the Palestinian and Israeli sides".
Egypt urged Israelis and Palestinians to "carefully study" the
proposal. The foreign ministry said in a statement that the plan
favours a solution that restores all the "legitimate rights" of the
Palestinian people through establishing an “independent and sovereign
state on the occupied Palestinian territories".
Egypt, which along with Jordan is the only Arab country to have made
peace with Israel, said it appreciates the US administration's efforts
to try to resolve the decades-old conflict.
Yousef al-Otaiba, the United Arab Emirates' ambassador to Washington,

A statement carried by state-run Qatar News Agency said the country
"welcomes all efforts aiming towards a longstanding and just peace in
the occupied Palestinian territories". It said Qatar "appreciates the
endeavours of President Trump and the current US administration to
find solutions for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict", but added that
"all solutions should be consistent with international law and the
relevant UN resolutions".
"All Arab states, through the Arab League, have adopted in 2002 the
Arab Peace Initiative, which articulated a set of principles conducive
to a just peace," the statement said.
"The State of Qatar notes in this context that peace cannot be
sustainable if Palestinians' rights in their sovereign state within
the 1967 borders, including East Jerusalem, and the right of return
are not preserved."
