Saudi official: Any nuclear agreement with Iran should lead to broader deal

A Saudi official tells Reuters the kingdom is in consultations with world powers about negotiations to restore the nuclear deal with Iran, and says any agreement should be “a starting point” to expanding the accord.

“We want to make sure at a minimum that any financial resources made available to Iran via the nuclear deal are not used… to destabilize the region,” says Rayd Krimly, the Saudi foreign ministry’s head of policy planning.

“We are going to do everything we can [so] that a nuclear deal is a starting point, not an endpoint in this process.”
