Iran cannot be trusted is the firm message of the Saudis concerning the controversial status quo that exists in the area of the Middle East. It was expressed by one of the most representative officials of the Saudi government, the Minister of Defense, Mohammed bin Salman, who took the prerogatives of this highly important position recently. The new Minister of Defense of one of the richest countries in the world relative to oil resources, Saudi Arabia, made this point of view public during a meeting with the Congressmen of the United States, meeting which took place in the Arabic state. Prince Mohammed bin Salman expressed his concerns with the danger that Iran could represent for the hot situation in the Middle East. The prince does not consider the Iranian government as being trustworthy. This information comes from a briefing of the conference between Mohammed bin Salman and the Congressmen. The Republican Vem Buchanan offered a view of the entire meeting, including this essential statement.
Besides this point of interest, the meeting obviously also had other objectives. The top priorities on the list that have been discussed included the controversial status quo that dominates Middle East`s recent years and present. The Congressmen and the prince Mohammad bin Salman have also approached the foreign policies led by the Iranian government. Both sides seem to have found it as an `aggressive` form of making politics on an international scale. Saudi Arabia`s new Minister of Defense is the son of the new leader of the Saudi Kingdom, the recently vested King Salman.
Mohammed bin Salman reckons that the Iranian government should not be trusted. The prince has also approached one of Obama administration`s most recent actions concerning the disorder in the Arabic zone: expressing its willing to negotiate with Iran. Mohammed bin Salman emphasized the fact that such a decision could not be accepted without a critical reasoning in order to determine if it really was a good move, since Iran is the main cause of the chaotic line of events that occur in the Middle East, according to Republican Vem Buchanan, who offered a summary of the meeting that took place in Riyadh.
“I asked the Prince what he thought about the discussions between the U.S. and Iran, and he responded that he doesn’t think the United States is taking the threat posed by Iran seriously. He said the Saudis would also like more military assistance from the U.S. to combat Iran’s growing influence in the region.”
said Vem Buchanan, who added that the Saudi Minister of Defense did not have a mild speech on the matter.
