CQ Roll Call quotes Brent Scowcroft Center Resident Senior Fellow for Middle East Security Bilal Y. Saab on King Salman’s views on Iran:

“I pretty much see a continuation of the same views and the same policies [toward] this archrival,” said Bilal Saab, senior fellow for Middle East security with the Atlantic Council.


“This is not a unilateral decision taken by the king,” Saab said. “This is quite a complex decision that will happen by consensus” within the royal family and Saudi oil business community.
