Prince Khaled lays his defense policy on the line.
Noticing the atmosphere of tumult and revolution in the Middle East, Prince Khaled of Saudi Arabia said that “we are well prepared to defend our borders and safeguard our stability”. This statement came amidst increasing chaos in Yemen which borders Saudi Arabia. The Iranian threat where revolution is being exported from Tehran was also taken into view.
The Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is situated on some of the richest oil fields in the world. This is seen as a lucrative prize by many who desire gain. Previously, during the Gulf War when Saddam Hussain invaded Kuwait, King Fahad was quoted as saying: “We will preserve every grain of sand of the kingdom.” That was made possible by the American forces back then. Let us hope this time around the same state of stability remains.
