According to the Arabic CNN news website, A-Sudairy will become the first ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the Palestinian Authority.

Al-Haladi, advisor to Abu Mazen, conveyed: "We congratulate the Saudi ambassador and emphasize that this significant step will contribute to strengthening the strong relations that bind the two countries and peoples." He further added on behalf of the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority: "On behalf of Abu Mazen, he expressed the Authority's appreciation for the steadfast positions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia towards the Palestinian people and its consistent support for the Palestinian issue."

Abu Mazen is scheduled to arrive in Egypt tomorrow for an official visit, during which he will participate in a trilateral summit with President A-Sisi and King Abdullah II of Jordan as part of "continuing cooperation and the consolidation of common stances."
