Al-Jubeir: The leadership of Saudi Arabia is a red line

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said “The leadership of Saudi Arabia represented in the king and the crown prince is a red line for every Saudi — man or woman.”

“The country is totally supportive of them. Every Saudi feels represented by his leadership, and every Saudi represents his leadership. There are outrageous comments that are being made and are totally unacceptable,” Al-Jubeir told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble on Wednesday.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is committed to its leadership, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is committed to the vision that our leaders have put forth for us in terms of Vision 2030 and in terms of moving along the path of reform,” Jubeir said. “And we will continue to move in spite of what people may or may not say.”

A day before Al-Jubeir’s interview, President Donald Trump affirmed his support for the kingdom and its leadership.

Trump said Saudi Arabia was an important political and economic ally, and he dismissed media reports on a claimed CIA conclusion Jamal Khashoggi’s killing.
