Ministry of Defence: Riyadh doesn’t want to allow an armed conflict with Iran
Riyadh doesn’t believe that the increase in tensions with Iran will lead to a direct armed conflict. In any case, it intends not to allow this, the Defense Minister of Saudi Arabia, Muhammad bin Salman Al Saud, stated today.
"An armed conflict is something we don’t expect. Those who pushed the countries in this direction are out of their minds. A war between Saudi Arabia and Iran would be the beginning of a huge catastrophe in the region. It would affect the rest of the world. We won’t allow this,’’ RIA Novosti cites his interview for The Economist.
