Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is hiding his mother from King Salman, her husband, 14 current and former senior United States officials told NBC News. Many countries around the world and in Europe did not realize how unsafe Hitler was until what happened, happened. "I don't want to see the same events happening in the Middle East", he said.

His comments come as the Trump administration threatens to end the Iran nuclear deal, which could leave Tehran free to advance its development of atomic weapons.

Iran is not a rival to Saudi Arabia.

Further Saudi Prince drew parallels between Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Germany dictator Adolf Hitler.

MBS has kept his parents apart for over two years, according to 14 current and former senior USA officials who spoke to NBC News citing several years of intelligence analysis.The crown prince has come up with a range of excuses to explain his mother's whereabouts and avoid arousing his father's suspicion, including that she is overseas for medical treatment.

The nuclear watchdog agency charged with making sure Iran sticks with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, which requires them to limit the scope of their enrichment program in exchange of sanctions relief, has said, time and time again, that Iran is complying with the terms of the agreement.


Mohammed bin Salman said the Saudis "do not want" nukes but would be forced to develop them should their Shia counterparts acquire them.

An excerpt from the interview was broadcast Thursday on CBS This Morning.

Last year, he was elevated to crown prince, and is seen as the effective ruler under his 82-year-old father.

Prince Mohammed's remarks were aired just days before he is due to visit Washington for talks with US President Donald Trump. This is what Iran was doing -- and may still be doing in its unsupervised military facilities - until a nuclear deal was reached in 2015 with Western powers. So we're taking a unified approach to Iran. O'Donnell, a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes", asked the 32-year-old crown prince about the political, economic and social reforms unfolding in his kingdom.

The plan, he says, aims "to produce energy so that we can save the oil and export it in order to generate revenue". But his new replacement Mike Pompeo has long shared the president's view that the agreement should be scrapped.
