Report: Saudi Arabia to Obtain Pakistani Nukes as Last Resort


An agreement between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan could see the Gulf state deploy ready-made nuclear warheads in the event that Iran crosses the nuclear threshold. That's according to a report by BBC Newsnight, which cites "multiple sources" suggesting "generous" Saudi aid for Pakistan's nuclear own program was given as part of an understanding by the two countries that, if and when Saudi Arabia required use of nuclear warheads, the Pakistanis would provide it to them. "What did we think the Saudis were giving us all that money for? It wasn't charity," one "senior Pakistani" told the BBC.
