Saudi Arabia wants nuclear bombs if Iran restarts its weapons programme

Saudi ambassador to US: Deal fueled Iran's malicious regional expansion

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry also said Iran must abide by its commitments under the separate nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty "in a way that will ensure that Iran remains a country free of nuclear weapons".

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Tuesday the United States will pull out of the 2015 nuclear agreement, vowing to re-impose nuclear-related economic penalties on Iran.

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

US shale producers could also increase their output but it would take time and their light crude is not a good substitute for heavier Iranian oil.

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.

"People shouldn't take it for granted that Saudi Arabia will produce more oil single-handedly".

The existence of an understanding was confirmed by the U.S. Treasury Secretary who told reporters on Tuesday that "we have had conversations with various parties. that would be willing to increase oil supply".

The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries is in the midst of an oil supply-cutting deal with non-OPEC producers such as Russian Federation that has helped erase a global glut and boosted oil prices above $75, the highest since 2014.

Hawaii's Mount Kilauea Volcano Eruption Progresses, 10 Volcanic Fissures Now Open
It was just one among the dozens to hit the area within 24 hours and was the most powerful natural disaster to hit the island. Authorities have locked down the Leilani Estates neighborhood in Pahoa, more than 25 miles from the Kilauea Volcano .

Oil prices are stable because of market stability, he said, because OPEC's goal "is not prices but market stability and lowering storage levels".

In effect, the United States agreed to implement tough sanctions, and Saudi Arabia agreed to limit the impact on oil prices.

"At the heart of the Iran deal was a giant fiction - that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful nuclear energy program".

The collapse in Venezuelan output has reduced production much more than intended and caused global oil inventories to draw down much faster than OPEC predicted at the end of previous year. However, it provides a golden opportunity for the Trump administration to bolster nuclear negotiations with another Middle Eastern State, Saudi Arabia.

July ICE Brent futures settled Wednesday at $77.21/b, up $2.36 on the day, while the June NYMEX contract rose $2.08 to $71.14/b.

"Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb [s], but without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible", MBS told CBS in an interview.

In an apparent reference to Iran, bin Salman last month that his country and Israel have "a common enemy" and that they could immediately normalize their relations once the Palestine issue is resolved. The least likely outcome is that Asian countries co-operate fully with the U.S. in its renewed conflict with Iran.
