Saudi FM: Iran’s nuclear program poses a threat to the Gulf

Share:

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal warned during a ministerial meeting of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC )on Wednesday that Iran’s nuclear program could pose a threat to the security of the Gulf region and accused Iran of continuing to interfere in neighboring states.

“Tehran’s work to develop nuclear capabilities, which would allow it in the future to have nuclear weapons, would represent a clear threat to the security and stability of the region.” He said

Tension escalated between Tehran and Riyadh following an alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi envoy to Washington.

Iran is also facing four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions over its nuclear program

Relations between Iran and the GCC countries were also strained following a crackdown in March on protests in Bahrain that had been led by the tiny kingdom’s Shiite majority which was supported by the regime in Iran and Hezbollah militants in Lebanon .

    the shahab 3 will reach the heart of riyad  and loaded with a nuclear warehead , it will really be  a dream come true , for iran they want to invade the middleast for many reasons , some of the reasons are;
    1-expand there sect across the world to become a shia,s empire
    2- to controle and possess the oill
    3-to liberate the shia,s in saudi arabia and the gulf ,because they feel they are misstreated by saudiarabia majority of sunnis sect. and so,etc.,
    that is the reason iran hate the us .because the us is protecting saudi arabia , and the gulf . and they want the us to leave the area , so they could invade saudi arabia and the middleast and accomplish there goal.

        And after Iran drops some big ones, we can send Leo and Dab and Nastyrallah, along with all the paleys who covet Israeli land, in to clean up the nuclear waste for the next 100 years … or, as long as their skin stays on, at least.
         That will give them some viable work they should be happy to do, free up north Lebanon at the same time, and everyone can praise the Supreme Stupidity forever.
        This assumes that the USA and Russia haven’t sent a few of their big ones to Iran in retaliation … in which case there won’t be anyone around – perhaps anywhere – to see the open spaces.
        Mother Earth might be pleased ….
