Saudi Arabia will acquire nuclear bomb under one condition, which is if Iran does as well. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia has compared the Iranian leader with Adolf Hitler. Furthermore, he claims that if Iran will develop nuclear weapons, Saudi Arabia will also acquire nuclear bomb “as soon as possible”
Mohammad Bin Salman said this in a prerecorded interview with “60 Minutes”.
Furthermore, Saudi Arabia feels that Iran is funding the mercenaries to weaken Arab states and promote sectarianism.
Both the countries also have their conflict in issues relating to Yemen, Syria, and Iraq.

Mohammad is expected to visit the USA on Monday. He will meet the President of the USA President Donald Trump in the White House. His aim is to convince the Americans to invest in his plans to boost Saudi economy.
Mohammad in his interview said that “Iran is far from being equal to Saudi Arabia.”
He was asked of his comparison of Iran leader with Hitler, his reply was, “Absolutely. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler, who wanted to expand at the time.”
Adding, “Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how dangerous Hitler was until what happened, happened. I don’t want to see the same events happening in the Middle East.”
Then he was asked about Saudi Arabia acquiring nuclear weapons to stand against Iran his reply was, “Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb, but without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.”
The officials of Saudi Arabia were not happy with Obama’s administration for pushing for an agreement to control and restrict Iran’s nuclear weaponry quest. They believe that the agreement will just delay Iran’s plan and other Iranian activities like supporting Shiite militants will be ignored.
