US-Saudi Nuclear Talks Aimed at Containing Iran

A lawmaker described the nuclear negotiations between Saudi Arabia and the United States as a "political game" aimed at undermining Iran's regional clout.
"The US and Saudi Arabia are seeking to weaken Iran's role in the region. The issue of a US-Saudi nuclear agreement appears to have been raised for political motives." Ezzatollah Yousefian told ICANA in a Friday talk. 
"Such future [nuclear] activities, if any, in Saudi Arabia will be undertaken by the US because, unlike the Islamic Republic, the Saudis lack the required know-how," he said. 
Yousefian was commenting on an AP report earlier this week that US Energy Secretary Rick Perry would lead an interagency US delegation to talks with the Saudis in London on Friday.
