Various reports from BBC News in 2013 and 2015, indicated that Saudi Arabia had invested in Pakistaninuclear weapons projects and believes it could obtain nuclear bombs at will. Intelligence reports indicated taht nuclear weapons made in Pakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia were being held on their behalf and sitting ready for delivery.
MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN: Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb, but without a doubt, if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.
MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN: Iran is not a rival to Saudi Arabia. Its army is not among the top five armies in the Muslim world. The Saudi economy is larger than the Iranian economy. Iran is far from being equal to Saudi Arabia.
NORAH ODONNELL: But I’ve seen that you called the Ayatollah, Khamenei, “the new Hitler” of the Middle East.
MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN: Absolutely.
NORAH ODONNELL: Why?
MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN: Because he wants to expand. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how dangerous Hitler was until what happened, happened. I don’t want to see the same events happening in the Middle East.
