Saudi king's son named crown prince: Royal decree

Galena Nuncio | 22 Junio, 2017, 08:13

Here's a look at major royal members in the history of the ultraconservative Sunni kingdom that's a longtime USA ally and top oil producer, and key figures in the latest reshuffle. And in an interview with The Washington Post, the new crown prince said Saudi Arabia is ready to confirm its words with actions, to prove to Russian Federation that it will be able to control the situation in the region better than Iran. The kingdom stretched across much of the Arabian Peninsula, ahead of oil being discovered there in 1938.

An analyst who studies the Gulf says the appointment of Saudi King Salman's son as crown prince could have a big effect on the kingdom. This policy has included unanticipated moves such as the war on Yemen and siege on Qatar. Faisal was assassinated in 1975 by his nephew. "Since Saudi King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz is aging and suffers from various illnesses, including Alzheimer's, it is therefore natural that the power-thirsty Saudi princes fight each other to take over the kingdom's throne after King Salman's [death]".

Saudi Arabia is the only major emerging economy not represented in the index.

But Wednesday's game against New Zealand was a reminder that there are still gaping weaknesses in El Tri . Ronaldo is one of Real Madrid's star players.

Of the new crown prince's personal life, Gulf News reports: "A law graduate from Riyadh's King Saud University, the dark-bearded prince with a receding hairline is the father of two boys and two girls and has married only once". He previously served as an adviser to the interior and defence ministries. As king, he launched Saudi Arabia's war on Shiite rebels in Yemen, in which the kingdom has been criticized for its airstrikes killing civilians.

Ulrichsen tells The Associated Press that Mohammed bin Salman's appointment also removes the challenge of having an increasingly elderly set of royals rule the kingdom.

Saudi king replaces first in line to the throne with his son, Mohammed bin Salman, the defence chief, state media says.

Bloomberg News reported that calculations by HSBC Holdings Plc predicting the kingdom's shares could see inflows of around $9 billion next year if the MSCI grants emerging market classification.

Saudi Arabia's once powerful counterterrorism czar, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, was removed from the line of succession - giving the younger prince a firmer hold on the kingdom's foreign policies, including its close ties with U.S. President Donald Trump, its rivalry with Iran, its more than two-year-long war in Yemen and its punishing moves to isolate Qatar.

Mohammed bin Nayef was once a towering figure credited with crushing al-Qaida's cells in Saudi Arabia. "If you look at it positively, it is basically setting Saudi Arabia's course into the 21st century". He worked closely with Washington after the September 11 attacks, helping to share intelligence to thwart more attacks. He has survived several assassination attempts, including one in 2009 by al-Qaida.

Queen's speech: Government will deliver eight separate bills on Brexit
The UK government has put on hold plans to welcome Donald Trump to the UK for at least the next two years, it was confirmed today. The plan says those made homeless by the fire should be rehoused "as close as practically possible" to where they lived before.

The warm ties forged between Riyadh and Washington under the Trump administration may have helped accelerate Mohammed bin Salman's ascension as crown prince.
