Saudi prince: Riyadh against military strike on Iran
November 16, 2011  14:15

Saudi Arabia's former intelligence chief yesterday said his country opposes any military strike on Iran, amid rising tensions over the Islamic republic's nuclear program.

"Such an act, I think, would be foolish. And to undertake it... would be tragic," said Prince Turki al-Faisal, his country's former intelligence chief and a former ambassador to Washington, speaking at a National Press Club briefing. A military strike would rally Iranians around their government, the prince argued.
