Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair said on Wednesday that the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman wants to turn Saudi Arabia into a normal and powerful country.
"The world is not used to seeing Saudi Arabia moving quickly and boldly," he said during a conference held at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
"Some criticized Saudi Arabia for progressing slowly, and today the opposite is happening,” he added.

World is not used to us moving quickly, certainly not boldly. In the past, they criticized us for moving too slowly and now many of their heads are spinning. This is relevant to our foreign policy.https://t.co/HINROEutFC pic.twitter.com/VHQGPkzfQe
