Dubai: Saudi Arabia's powerful deputy crown prince has hit out at Iran and said that they are trying to control the Muslim world. He ruled out any dialogue with Iran, a country he said was busy plotting to control the Muslim world.
Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, the Saudi defence minister, said his country could crush Iran-aligned fighters in Yemen where Saudi forces head a coalition of Gulf Arab states intervening in a civil war.
Saudi Arabia and Iran compete for influence in the Middle East, supporting rival groups in Syria's civil war. In Yemen, Iran denies providing financial or military support to the Al Houthis who are fighting



government forces allied with Saudi Arabia.
Asked if Saudi Arabia was ready to open a direct dialogue with Tehran, Prince Mohammad said it was impossible to talk with a power that was planning for the return of the Imam Mahdi - whom Shiites believe will return to establish global Islamic rule before the end of the world.
Asked to respond to reports that after two years of war and Saudi's military intervention the Al Houthis, aligned to ex-Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh, still control large swathes of Yemen and large quantities of weapons, Prince Mohammad said: "We can uproot the Al Houthis and Saleh in a matter of days."
