Earlier this year, Riyadh, as part of its civilian nuclear program, invited the United States to support the creation of its own fuel production and uranium enrichment system in the kingdom.
Saudi Arabia could quickly acquire a nuclear bomb if the country’s main rival, Iran, successfully develops its own nuclear weapons. The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, said this in an interview with Fox News.
“If they get it, we’ll have to get it too,” assured the crown prince.
He stressed that he was not looking for such weapons, but “Iran’s nuclear program has no other choice.”
“We will not allow a situation where Iran has a nuclear bomb and we don’t,” Mohammed bin Salman said.
Saudi Arabia and Iran have officially resumed diplomatic relations after a seven-year hiatus.
The commander of the aerospace forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Amir Ali Hajizadeh, said that Iran has missiles that can hit US military bases in Afghanistan, the UAE and Qatar, as well as the aircraft of US in the Persian Gulf.
