Arabs will continue to turn away from the United States after a nuclear deal with Iran that will “wreak havoc in the region,” Saudi Arabia’s former head of intelligence said.
Prince Bandar bin Sultan, writing in Lebanon’s Daily Star on July 16, said the deal between Iran and Western powers will allow Teheran to obtain a nuclear bomb and “it will wreak havoc in the Middle East which is already living in a disastrous environment, whereby Iran is a major player in the destabilization of the region.”
Bandar said the deal will also further erode Arab trust in the United States.
“People in my region now are relying on God’s will and consolidating their local capabilities and analysis with everybody else except our oldest and most powerful ally,” Bandar wrote.
