President Trump, who visited the kingdom last spring, has been effusive in his praise of King Salman, lauding their shared efforts against terrorism and antipathy toward Iran as well as massive Saudi purchases of US military equipment.
Admitting that Osama bin Laden had tainted Saudi Arabia's image in the West, Prince Mohammed claimed that was what the former Al Qaeda chief had aimed to do. "I'm not Gandhi or Mandela", Salman said while interacting with reporters in Washington, where he is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump on Tuesday. "I spend at least 51 percent on people and 49 on myself".
Currently, a loose-fitting full-length robe is typically worn by women in the kingdom when in public.
As a reformer, the 32-year-old's tenure has been markes so far by the decision to lift ban on driving for women, loosening clothing restrictions, promising to increase their participation in the workforce and facilitating the growth of entertainment and service sector. "They block humanitarian aid in order to create starvation and a humanitarian crisis". "Women worked everywhere. We were just normal people developing like any other country in the world until the events of 1979", he told O'Donnell. "What we did in Saudi Arabia was extremely necessary" and legal, he said.
Asked how much money was retrieved, Prince Mohammed said: "The amount exceeds $100 billion, but the real objective was not this amount or any other amount".
"Saudi Arabia was the first foreign country Trump visited after taking office, traveling to the kingdom in May and signing memorandums and agreements for defense spending that totaled about $110 billion", said Bloomberg.
Prince Mohammed said Iran played a destructive role in Yemen.
"I can't imagine that the United States will accept one day to have a militia in Mexico launching missiles on Washington D.C., NY and Los Angeles while Americans are watching these missiles and doing nothing". "The Iranian regime is based on pure ideology". "He lives in Iran and works out of Iran".
"Its army is not among the top five armies in the Muslim world. He is supported by Iran", he stressed. Uber is aggressively recruiting female drivers in Saudi Arabia.
And he warned that if Iran were to develop a nuclear bomb, Saudi Arabia would do the same 'as soon as possible'.
Prince Mohammed was named heir to the throne of the desert kingdom nine months ago and has grown increasingly powerful in its government.
Even before setting foot on American soil, Prince Mohammed struck a scathing tone toward Iran in an interview with CBS, comparing the territorial ambitions of that country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to those of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany. "The King always says, 'If you read the history of a thousand years, you have the experience of a thousand years'".
Asked what could stop him, he replied: "Only death". After visiting the United Kingdom last week, he will spend two weeks meeting political and business heads in Washington, New York and Silicon Valley.
The official announcement by the White House about the visit indicates the U.S. keenness to deepen strategic relations with the Kingdom based on the economic and investment as well as political and security aspects, according to observers.
The U.S. trip follows the crown prince's three-day state visit to the United Kingdom, where the two nations signed deals aimed at helping them reach a goal of $91 billion of mutual trade and investment in the coming years.
