Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States quickly reacted to Washington’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear accord with Iran saying the deal fueled Iran’s expansionist ideological drives across the Middle East.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia fully supports the measures taken by @POTUS with regards to the JCPOA. we always had reservations with regards to sunset clauses, ballistic missiles program, and Iran’s support for terrorism in the region.— Khalid bin Salman خالد بن سلمان (@kbsalsaud) May 8, 2018
As I said before with regards to the deal, we are on auto pilot heading towards a mountain. Deal has fueled Iran’s malicious expansion driven by its extremist ideology. It provided Iran with a financial windfall that it used to further sectarian strife/chaos in the region.— Khalid bin Salman خالد بن سلمان (@kbsalsaud) May 8, 2018
KSA always believed that the int’l community cannot address Iran's pursuit of WMD, without addressing the mass destruction Iran is inflecting on the region. Any future deal must address Iran’s ballistic missile program, and its increasing financial/military support for terrorism.— Khalid bin Salman خالد بن سلمان (@kbsalsaud) May 8, 2018
