Cheney, Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah To Meet Saturday

By Digital Journal Staff     Mar 16, 2002 in Technology
RIYADH (voa) - Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Abdullah says he will tell U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney that he opposes a U.S. strike against Iraq when the two men meet Saturday.
The Saudi prince told two American television networks (CNN and ABC) that he does not believe U.S. military action will result in the overthrow of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
The United States has made it clear it wants Saddam Hussein removed from power, saying he is trying to acquire or develop weapons of mass destruction. On Wednesday, President Bush said the Iraqi leader is a problem and that the United States will deal with him.
Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan responded by calling President Bush a criminal.
The vice president is touring 11 Middle Eastern countries to discuss the war on terrorism, U.S. concerns about Iraq and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
