MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Saudi Arabia opposes Iran's nuclear talks with six world powers, as the process carries the risk of nuclear technology proliferation in the Middle East, the BBC reported Monday, citing a senior Saudi prince.
"If Iran has the ability to enrich uranium to whatever level, it's not just Saudi Arabia that's going to ask for that. The whole world will be an open door to go that route without any inhibition, and that's my main objection to this P5+1 process," Prince Turki Faisal, a senior member of the Saudi royal family, said.
On March 11, Washington prolonged its economic restrictions on Iran, although US President Barack Obama noted the progress made in negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group.
In November, 2014 the six powers and Iran failed to reach the anticipated nuclear agreement and extended the deadline till July, 2015.The parties also hope to reach a political framework agreement by the end of March.
