Saudi threatens to develop nuclear bomb if Iran does

Posted March 16, 2018

The Saudi crown prince, who is in Washington to push for an atomic deal with the United States that could pave the way for the Saudi regime to enrich uranium, says Riyadh will be quick to develop nuclear bombs if Iran does so.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told United States network CBS News his country did not want to acquire nuclear weapons.

Using unusually harsh language, he went on to attack Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who he described as "very much like Hitler".
