Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince: Changes in defense ministry to get better results

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman, said that the recent changes made to the Ministry of Defense would bring better results, state-owned news channel Al-Ekhbariya reported on Wednesday.
The changes announced by King Salman on Monday were efforts to recruit people who could achieve the goals of modernization, the Crown Prince said.
The Saudi Crown Prince described the new wave of reforms and his campaign against corruption as part of the shock treatment that is essential to the development of cultural and political life in the Kingdom and the suppression of extremism.
“The Kingdom will not be able to achieve budget targets without putting an end to this looting,” he said.
On his domestic and regional policies, Mohammed Bin Salman said the changes were essential to finance the development of the Kingdom and to combat its enemies, such as Iran. Adding that the pace and speed of change is necessary for success.
Mohammad bin Salman denied claims that Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was pressed to resign on Nov. 4, 2017, explaining that Hariri was now in a better position in Lebanon than Hezbollah.
