Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman remarked that “they [ie, Iran] are neighbours. Neighbours forever… It’s better for both of us to work it out and to look for ways in which we can coexist. And we had a four-rounds of negotiation. We heard statements from Iranian leaders which we welcome in Saudi Arabia. And we are going to continue through the details of the negotiation. Hopefully, we can reach a position that's good for both countries and is going to create a brighter future for this country and Iran”. He also noted: “Any country around the world that has a nuclear bomb – that’s dangerous, regardless if it’s Iran or any other country. So we don’t want to see that. We don’t want to see a weak nuclear deal”.
