Crown Prince said: “It’s up to him to think about the interests of America.” “We have a long, historic relationship with the United States. For us in Saudi Arabia, our aim is to keep it and to strengthen it.”
He added: “You don’t have the right to interfere in our internal affairs. That’s about us Saudis, and no one can do a thing about that. If you believe that you have the right social views and values and if they are strong, then you’ll get a win without pressuring us.”
