Yesh Atid chairman MK Yair Lapid met with Saudi prince Turki bin Faisal Wednesday in New York, where they discussed Lapid’s peace initiative.

Lapid’s plan includes adopting parts of the Arab Peace Initiative, which was first proposed by then-crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in 2002. The Yesh Atid leader’s outline would involve Arab states in making peace and partnering with them to fight ISIS and other jihadists, as well as combat Iranian efforts to become a “terrorist superpower.”

The MK is currently in the US to present his plan to Republican and Democratic members of Congress, think tanks and others.
