Saudis will seek nuclear weapon if Iran does, minister tells CNN

UN chief tells parties to Yemen conflict to uphold law

Saudi Arabia has backed a number of Islamist groups attempting to topple Assad, and, like Israel, Saudi Arabia was one of the few countries to welcome Trump's decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal, something his European allies urged him not to do.

Oil-rich Saudi Arabia has long said it would match any Iranian weapons development, but Jubeir s renewed vow came after US President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of an accord created to prevent Tehran s alleged quest for the bomb. All potential violations of worldwide humanitarian law should be thoroughly investigated and those responsible for violations must be held accountable. He further added that it is unacceptable for them and also violates the United Nations Resolution about ballistic missiles.

"We will find the right way and at the right time to respond to this". Since the conservative Sunni kingdom maintains Tehran is backing the militia in Yemen, the Saudi official said the strikes amounted to a "declaration of war". While the Gulf states may want to see the U.S. and Israel try to cut Iran to size, I don't think they want to get dragged into a direct confrontation themselves.

Trump said his decision to leave the JCPOA was created to counter that possibility.

In a press statement, Saudi Arabia said that it welcomed the decision, claiming that Iran had "exploited" economic gains from the deal in order to "destabilize" the region.


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has argued that his country can seek to upscale their nuclear arsenal "without limit" now. Yemen's Shiite rebels fired ballistic missiles at the Saudi capital on Wednesday, according to the rebels and the Saudi military.

'Whether or not (the Iranians) go for a military programme, you're going to get a nuclear race in the Middle East, ' said Dorsey. Earlier, the military said it had intercepted two missiles fired across the border at southern Jizan province, hundreds of miles from Riyadh.

A journalist asked him a question during an interview that will Saudi Arabia develop a nuclear bomb itself.

Saudi Arabia also protested Iran's growing foothold in the Middle East.

Iran has ruled out renegotiating the accord and threatened to retaliate, although it has not said exactly how, if Washington pulled out.
