The Saudi crown prince and next ‘would be King’ Mohammed Bin Salman described Iran, Turkey and militant groups as the “contemporary triangle of evil.”
Surprisingly he stated that Saudi Arabia was seeking to end the close relations between Iran on the one hand and Russia and Syria on the other.
His comments were made to local editors during a visit to Egypt this week and published Wednesday in the independent Al-Shoruk newspaper.
However the Crown Prince famous for bringing kingdom nearer to the West by initiating different transformations recently in Saudi’s social norms said, that the Saudis would not have any problem if Qatar attends Arab summit scheduled later this month adding that the standoff between Riyadh and Qatar would last a long time.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing the tiny but super-rich Gulf state of supporting militant groups and forging close ties with Iran.
