Saudi crown prince says Bashar is staying
Bashar Assad is not likely to be ousted from power, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Salman told TIME Thursday in a wide-ranging interview.
He said he hopes that Assad will not become a “puppet” for Tehran.
“Bashar is staying,” he said. “But I believe that Bashar’s interest is not to let the Iranians do whatever they want they want to do.”
