Saudi Arabia warns of possible war with Iran
Saudi Arabia may go to war with Iran in the next 10-15 years if the international community fails to apply more sanctions pressure on Tehran, Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman told The Wall Street Journal.
He called on the international community to impose more severe sanctions against Tehran in order to avoid a military confrontation in the region.
"We must achieve this in order to avoid a military conflict, if we fail to do this, we will probably have a war with Iran in 10-15 years," the prince said.
Recently, the crown prince lashed out at Iran, comparing the country's authorities with Hitler and mentioned the possibility of an arms race in the region if Tehran develops its nuclear program. Commenting on bin Salman’s statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi called the Crown Prince a "delusional, naive person."
