Comments earlier from Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in a television interview broadcast late Tuesday.
- he sought “good” relations
- “Iran is a neighbouring country, and all we aspire for is a good and special relationship with Iran”
- “We do not want Iran’s situation to be difficult. On the contrary, we want Iran to grow… and to push the region and the world towards prosperity”
