Some odd behavior by the Saudis.
According to a report in today’s Independent:
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel Al-Jubeir, has refused to answer questions about reports Riyadh was attempting to buy nuclear weapons from Pakistan, but said the Kingdom would do “whatever it takes” to protect itself.
Well, you could say its possible that he has nothing to say. Thats why he is refusing to discuss this any further.
True, but when you add this warning by John Kerry on Monday when he:
warned Saudi Arabia and Pakistan against trading nuclear weapons, saying there would be “all kinds of NPT [Non-Proliferation Treaty] consequences” if they did.
Then another picture emerges, especially when you place it in the context that it was the Saudis who have been financing Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program and the fact that the Saudis were one of the leading voices of opposition against the Iran nuclear deal.
Lets keep an eye on this story.
