Saudi Arabia Says It Considers Option To Develop Own Nuclear Weapons

Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said that Saudi Arabia would seek to develop its own nuclear weapons if Iran uses the US withdrawal from the 2015 Iran deal as a pretext to renew a nuclear weapons program, CNN reported on May 9.

“We will do whatever it takes to protect our people. We have made it very clear that if Iran acquires a nuclear capability we will do everything we can to do the same,” Adel Al-Jubeir stressed.

The Saudi minister praised US President Donald Trump’s May 8 announcement that the US withdraws from the Iran nuclear deal. 

Adel Al-Jubeir criticized the agreement’s points that expire in 2025 and 2030 and the fact that its matter is limited to nuclear issues.

“We believe the deal does not deal with Iran’s ballistic missile program nor does it deal with Iran’s support for terrorism.”

CNN also noticed that the White House has been pursuing a deal to sell nuclear reactors to Riyadh despite the Saudi reluctance to accept restrictions against nuclear proliferation.

In March, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud warned of the possible military conflict with Iran and made an appeal to impose severe sanctions on Tehran.

      That’s why they are not a danger for USA. They are too stupid. Stupid people are easily manipulated. But, the iranians are smart and can develop nuclear weapons.

    By definition, the useful idiots must be idiots and useful. That’s the case for Saudi Arabia.

    “SAUDI ARABIA SAYS IT CONSIDERS OPTION TO DEVELOP OWN NUCLEAR WEAPONS”

    … U.S., France, and the U.K. start putting in bids to sell them nuclear arsenal.

      They will try to buy it from Pakistan afterall they paid for the development of nuclear bombs by Pakistan.

  • Smaug

    I understand why they’re saying this (throwing in their official support for overturning the deal), but neither the US/UK nor anyone else would allow the Saudis to go nuclear.

    The ruling family of Saudi Arabia is jew. The jew Al-saud “converted” himself to islam, i.e., is a crypto-jew. You will find similar situations in most of Sunni countries.

    Saudi Arabia already has nuclear weapons. They funded the pakistani nuclear program in exchange to the nuclear warheads. The thermo-nuclear explosion registered in Yemen 2 or 3 years ago possibly was from saudi stockpile.
