Saudi King Salman Looking to Remove Son Mohammad as Crown Prince: Report



The Saudi crown prince, for his involvement in controversial projects and issues, invited national and international criticism including, it seems, the loss of confidence of his father, the King.

Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman’s position as a crown prince is facing precariousness as his father King Salman is looking to replace him, according to a report by Spanish newspaper Publico.

The conflict between the king and his son resulted from differences in their approach to various national and international issues. One of the biggest differences between them is their difference of opinion on the Israel-Palestine issue, the newspaper reported. The crown prince has sided with Israel but in July, the king has publicly defended Palestinians causing a rift between them.

Earlier this week, the king canceled the sale of five percent of Aramco, the state-owned oil company that is crucial to Saudi Arabia’s economy. The sale of Aramco was the flagship ambition of the ‘Vision 2030’ plan pushed by Mohammad bin Salman.

His project was to free economic dependency on oil and create a competitive economy to replace it, starting by selling a percentage of Aramco to private businesses. The cancellation of the sale by his father is a major setback for the project in a near future in which he is set to become king.

The Saudi prince attracted criticism from international players as well. His involvement in the Saudi-led war on Yemen, which has so far seen the killing of more than 10,000 people, most of them civilians, invited sharp criticism from the international community.

This is completely False report , King Salman is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and he cant remember any thing and this was shown clearly at the Arab Summit meeting when he asked his assistant if he had read the sentence or not after just starting , it seems that MBS tried to spread these False reports on the media to know who is waiting a chance to remove him or who is against him , Briefly the King is absent and MBS has full control and power.
