Saudi Arabia wants nuclear bombs if Iran restarts its weapons programme

The nuclear deal reached in 2015 has only tackled the nuclear side in the Iranian practices, which was not the sole element that should have been watched, the statement said.

The government approved a national policy for its atomic energy programme on Tuesday, including limiting all nuclear activities to peaceful purposes, within the limits defined by global treaties.

He also praised President Donald Trump's announcement Tuesday that the USA was quitting the Iran nuclear deal. "We have made it very clear, if Iran acquires nuclear capability, we will do everything we can to do the same".

Such an agreement is necessary for the United States to transfer significant nuclear material, equipment, or components from the United States to Saudi Arabia and could considerably help USA companies like Westinghouse be shortlisted later this year to build the country's first two nuclear reactors.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who serves as Saudi defense minister, told CBS News in March that his country would "without a doubt" develop nuclear weapons if Iran did so.

Global oil supplies have been already tightening ahead of this US president determination to grab of this milestone nuclear accord on Tuesday, even though crude stocks have jumped to last-minute highs.

At an Arab League summit last month hosted by Saudi Arabia, the country's King Salman said the regional body agreed to "renew our strong condemnation of Iran's terrorist acts in the Arab region and reject its blatant interference in the affairs of Arab countries".

Jubeir's comments came amid growing tension between the Sunni kingdom and the Islamic republic over Iran's support for the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

"People should not take it for granted that Saudi Arabia will produce more oil single-handedly".

The US Treasury Department said there will be "certain 90-day and 180-day wind-down periods" after which the anti-Iran sanctions will be in "full effect", including sanctions against Iran's oil sector. "We need to assess first the impact if there is any, in terms of disruption, in terms of a reduction of Iran's production", the OPEC source said.

Yemen's policy of targeting only Saudi Arabia's economic facilities and state-run airports and its refusal to attack civilian areas signifies that the Yemeni forces respect moral and human values, the commander explained.

Apart from praising the withdrawal, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that the country would do "everything we (Saudi Arabia) can" to build a nuclear bomb if Iran does the same, The Hill noted.

Saudi Arabia, as always, claimed it had intercepted two ballistic missiles over the capital on Wednesday.
