Saudi Crown Prince: Islam has been kidnapped
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman expressed his belief that the Islamic religion had been hijacked, pointing out that extremist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda and Daqash had distorted religion.
On Iran, Mohammed bin Salman in an interview with the New York Times criticized the nuclear agreement with Tehran, pointing out that this agreement will delay Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons, but will not prevent it from doing so.
"If they have a nuclear weapon, it is a shield to allow them to do what they want in the Middle East," he said, adding that Iran was seeking nuclear weapons "so that it can act freely in the Middle East without fear of punishment."
He called for the need to "replace the current nuclear agreement with another guarantee that Tehran will not obtain nuclear weapons and to counter Iran's other activities in the Middle East."
Mohammed bin Salman said that the Houthis had fired missiles at Saudi Arabia as "their last attempt", reiterating his country's position to end the conflict in Yemen through a political process.
