Saudi Arabia supports a US nuclear deal with Iran as long as it ensures Tehran will “not now or ever gain” access to nuclear weapons, the top Saudi diplomat said Tuesday.

“We certainly support a deal with Iran, as long as that deal ensures that Iran will not now or ever gain access to nuclear weapons technology, so that’s the challenge. It’s not that we think Iran should forever be a pariah; we would very much welcome Iran as a productive part of the region,” Prince Faisal bin Farhan said during a webinar.
