Saudi Arabia Promises to Match Iran in Nuclear Capability


saudi-arabias-king-salmanSaudi Arabia and many of the smaller Arab states are now vowing to match whatever nuclear enrichment capability Iran is permitted to retain.

“We can’t sit back and be nowhere as Iran is allowed to retain much of its capability and amass its research,” one Arab leader said this week. “Whatever the Iranians have, we will have, too,” former Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki bin Faisal told a recent conference.

It is widely presumed that Pakistan would provide Saudi Arabia with nuclear technology, if not a weapon itself, since the Saudis financed much of the work done by Pakistani nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan.
