If Saudi Arabia doesn’t succeed in continuing to impose economic and political sanctions to terminate Iran’s nuclear program, they are likely to go to war with Iran in 10-15 years, the kingdom’s Minister of Defense and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the Wall Street Journal in an interview this week.
The crown prince called on the international community to create more pressure on the Iranian regime so as to avoid a military conflict.
“We have to succeed so as to avoid military conflict,” the royal said. “If we don’t succeed in what we are trying to do, we will likely have war with Iran in 10-15 years.”
The nuclear agreement had been made by Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, which loosened sanctions on the country in return for promises to curb their nuclear program.
