(Reuters) - Israel can become "a potential ally" of Saudi Arabia if the conflict with the Palestinians is resolved, the Saudi state-news agency SPA cited Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman as saying on Thursday.

"We look at Israel as a potential ally but before that it should solve its problems with the Palestinians," the agency cited him as saying.
