Franco-Saudi relations are at low point as of late.

The Pentagon has since 2015 provided "non-combat support" to Saudi Arabia, including intelligence sharing and air-to-air refueling for its war planes.

Muhammad's comment about his country developing a nuclear weapon if Iran does comes just a week after Netanyahu said in NY that the only way to prevent the Middle East from turning into a tinderbox of nuclear-armed countries is to deny Iran the right to enrich uranium.

Iran is not a rival to Saudi Arabia.

He also noted that Iran's army is not even among the five biggest ones in the Muslim world.

Saudi Arabia has been at loggerheads with revolutionary Shiite Iran for decades.

According to media sources, The United States, South Korea, Russia, France, and China are bidding on a multi-billion dollar tender to build Saudi Arabia's first two nuclear reactors.

Unilever has left London, but it hasn't gone

He nonetheless reiterated his belief that Khamenei was "the new Hitler" and elaborated on his logic.

Saudi Oil Minister Khalid al-Falih, who is also Aramco's chairman, has said in the past that Aramco was interested in investing in global upstream ventures, particularly gas, and could invest in importing gas into the kingdom. "He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time", he said. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how risky Hitler was until what happened, happened.

Speaking to reporters accompanying him back to Washington after a visit to the Middle East, Mattis said Thursday he sees the current path as helping push the Yemen crisis to a UN-brokered peace deal.

Saudi Arabia will develop nuclear weapons if its archrival Iran does so, the kingdom's crown prince said in remarks released Thursday, raising the prospect of a nuclear arms race in a region already riven with conflict.

The crown prince also accused Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of harboring expansion ambitions in the Middle East. We learned from Europe that appeasement doesn't work.

Israel never joined the 1970 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has said it would consider inspections and controls under the NPT only if was at peace with its Arab neighbors and Iran. The NATO members has moved away from supporting the Gulf States and America under Erdogan, however, and despite differences with Iran on the rule of dictator Bashar al-Assad in Syria, has attempted to establish closer ties to Tehran.
