Does Saudi Arabia now recognize a Palestinian state?

Official news agency item --

President Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine, the Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, will arrive here tomorrow in a visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the talks with Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

As far as The Google can determine, that particular usage has never been employed before.  He has always been something like "Palestinian President," without any direct reference to a named state.
