According to Prince of Saudi Arabia, Turki bin Faisal al-Saud, a possible deal between the US and Russia on Syria will turn into a real “disaster.”
Former head of the intelligence service and Prince of Saudi Arabia, Turki bin Faisal al-Saud, warned US President-elect Donald Trump against a deal on Syria with Moscow and Tehran, the Kuwaiti KUNA news agency reported on Wednesday.
According to al-Saud, if Trump decides to make a deal with Russia and Iran on Syria, it will be “the most disastrous thing that could happen.” He also added that since the making a deal on Iran, Iranian troops have been massively arriving on the Syrian territory and it has already led to deaths of many people.
He urged Trump to meet “with America’s friends in the Middle East” before his inauguration in January and then help them to stop “the biggest terrorist, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.”
Al-Saud also appealed to Trump with a request “not to do away with the Iran nuclear deal” and stressed that he “would rather see that this nuclear deal becomes a first step in ridding the Middle East of nuclear weapons.”
