military action against council if it acquires russian weapons le figaro says the saudi prince has written to u.s. president donald trump on the british prime minister to resign made to warn that it's ready to retaliate if the s four hundred anti aircraft defense system it was revealed he'd written a similar letter to the french president to money on friday. the moscow said in january that his country intended to acquire the missile system build or journalist an ominous with matches doesn't think the saudi threat is serious so begins with going to macron and then to the washington then we're told to london why would you go to the russians this is a question that i don't understand which is that simply if you're upset about the russians selling this s. four hundred a very sophisticated anti missile defense system to the country is why don't you go to the russian and say look because the russians are already in a deal with the saudis on selling this system to the saudis they've already sold it to the turks for two point five billion they're in the process of doing

a deal with the egyptians and the saudis because if they say if you go ahead with this. you don't have to deal with us i don't think the threat is that serious i think it's all part of the posturing that's going on and clearly whereas the outside world the u.k. the europeans we hear the americans rather want to see this dispute settled. this saudis and the iraqis keep upping the ante i think the qataris have said look we'll sit down we'll have a conversation let's have a dialogue and they had to keep getting pushed up by the saudis and the amorality so i think what we're seeing here is a bit of gamesmanship to put more pressure on qatar using this as weapons dealers as part of that you know all capitals defense minister has warned against any confrontation with iran and he says the twenty fifty nuclear deal should be worked on despite the u.s. pulling out. in my own judgment
3:22 am
