Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud said that "death will prevent him from ruling Saudi Arabia for the next 50 years."
The Guardian published an article by Richard Spencer entitled "I plan to rule Saudi Arabia until I die," says the Saudi crown prince.
"Death alone will be the only impediment to not judging my country in the next half-century," Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in remarks to a US news channel.
The 32-year-old Saudi prince, who has been known for the past three years and has been one of Saudi Arabia's most powerful princes for decades, defended his country's war in Yemen and promised to lift some restrictions on women's dress in Saudi Arabia.
Asked if he would see himself in a position of strength for the next 50 years, he replied: "God only knows as we will. If I live 50 years or not, if the years go well and I survive, I will judge the country as expected."
"Death alone will prevent me from ruling Saudi Arabia," he said.
Prince Salman's remarks came to CBS before his visit to the United States.
"The Saudi prince describes his ideology as the closest to the American president of all his allies, and he worked closely with his son-in-law Gerard Kouchner, Trump's Middle East adviser.
The author of the article pointed out that the Saudi prince threatens to possess a nuclear bomb if Iran possessed it.
"The war in Yemen is justified by the spread of Iranian thought in some parts of the country," he said.
"Trump will decide on May 12 whether to withdraw from the agreement reached with Iran over its nuclear program, because he wants Britain, Germany and France to agree to force Iran to re-consult on the duration of the agreement as well as to ban experiments on Ballistic missiles.
