'Whether or not (the Iranians) go for a military programme, you're going to get a nuclear race in the Middle East, ' said Dorsey.
"Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb [s], but without a doubt if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible", MBS told CBS in an interview.
For Saudi Arabia, that is "fine" because it means the return of sanctions and ratcheting up pressure on Iran in the region, including by Israel. Worldwide agencies responsible for inspecting compliance have said that Iran was in full cooperation with the agreement's terms.
