WASHINGTON - 30 March 2018: Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group is “an incubator for all terrorists.”
“We have to get rid of extremism. Without extremism no one can become a terrorist,” Bin Salman said in statements to The Wall Street Journal.
Meanwhile, he called on the international community to squeeze Iran economically and politically to avoid a direct military confrontation in the region.
As for the situation in Yemen, the Saudi crown prince said failure to intervene in Yemen would have caused a bigger crisis.
“If we didn’t act in 2015 we would have had Yemen divided in half between the Houthis and al Qaeda,” Prince Mohammed said.
