The crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman has said that if Iran develops a nuclear bomb of it’s own, they will do the same.
In an interview with the CBS, the crown prince said, “Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb, but without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.”
He also said that Iran is not a ‘rival’ of Sausi Arabia as it not equal to it in any way.
“Iran is not a rival to Saudi Arabia. Its army is not among the top five armies in the Muslim world. The Saudi economy is larger than the Iranian economy. Iran is far from being equal to Saudi Arabia,” the crown prince asserted.
When asked that why did he call Iranian Supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei as the ‘New Hitler of the Middle East’, in November last year Prince Mohammad said that like Hitler, he too wants to ‘expand’.
“Because he wants to expand. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how dangerous Hitler was until what happened, happened. I don’t want to see the same events happening in the Middle East,” he said.
