Saudi foreign minister: ‘All bets off’ if Iran gets nuclear weapon

Saudi Foreign Minister HRH Prince Faisal bin Farhan confirmed, on Sunday, that “the failure of the nuclear agreement with Iran will enter the region into a very dangerous stage.” 

Prince Faisal bin Farhan said, “Polarization is the last thing the world needs at the present time.” 

The Saudi foreign minister stressed, in a dialogue session in the Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi, that “dialogue with China, the second largest economy in the world, is a very important issue.” 

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited the Kingdom last Wednesday and held a number of summits with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf, and the Arab region. 

Saudi foreign minister revealed the presentation of “an updated version of King Salman’s vision for cooperation between the Gulf states.” 

On the oil file, Prince Faisal bin Farhan made it clear that the Kingdom will continue to work to “stabilize oil prices” through dialogue with all partners. 

Prince Faisal bin Farhan added, “The price of oil must be fair to the consumer and the producer, and we explained that to America.” 

In response to a question about the failure to reach a nuclear agreement with Iran, the Saudi foreign minister stated that the Kingdom will continue to push for an agreement, considering that the aforementioned agreement – if it is reached – is only a first step and not the last. 

He added that reaching a nuclear agreement does not mean that there are guarantees that Tehran will not seek to produce nuclear weapons. 

Regarding the possibility of Iran producing nuclear weapons, Prince Faisal bin Farhan replied that this could be a dangerous development that threatens the security of the region. 

On the Middle East crisis, the Saudi foreign minister affirmed that the kingdom “supports the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.” 

On the Saudi interior, the foreign minister stated that “the priority is for the welfare of the Saudi people and achieving sustainable growth.”
