Debkafile: China to Help Saudis Gain a Nuclear Bomb

DEBKA-Net-Weekly #525

January 20, 2012

China took advantage of the US oil embargo on Iran to bid for Saudi oil instead. Riyadh agreed to provide oil in return for Chinese assistance in building a Saudi nuclear weapon program. Beijing no longer calls Iran its only strategic partner in the Middle East; Riyadh shares that privileged status with Tehran.

Until this week, the ayatollahs were sure Iran would play solo as the Persian Gulf region’s only Muslim nuclear power. Now Sunni Saudi Arabia is about to share the stage.
