Fayyad also praised the Arab continues support of the national Palestinian rights, with Saudi Arabia at the forefront; Palestinians’ right to self-determination and the establishment of an independent state based on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital.

He added that the continues Arab support to the Palestinians had a major affect on their steadfastness, expressing his confidence that Arabs will always be there to support Palestinians in order to enable them to overcome their financial crisis and the Israeli blackmailing attempts against Palestinians’ choices and their national unity.
