Palestinians have right to East Jerusalem as capital: Saudi King

Earlier in the week, Saudi Arabian officials announced that starting Jan. 1, the country will be reducing subsidies by increasing gasoline prices by 80 percent.

The 72bn riyals tranche to be spent in 2018 includes: 10bn riyals to support private sector projects, 5bn riyals to boost exports and 7bn riyals in reimbursements of government fees to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), according to a royal decree, carried by state-run Saudi Press Agency on Thursday.

Commerce and Investment Minister Majid Al-Qasabi explained in an interview with Bloomberg that the package was part of a SR200 billion, four-year program announced last year to spur the private sector to faster growth and higher rates of job creation.

Last week, Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, while planning to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, prompted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to "disqualify" the US to act as a mediator in future talks. The funds will be used to finance 16 initiatives, the largest of which earmarks $5.7 billion towards subsidized housing loans for citizens.
