Rumours of reshuffling in Saudi Arabia

+

King Abdallah of Saudi Arabia is supposedly on the verge of overhauling his foreign policy and preparing his succession, according to rumors circulating in London and Geneva.

With this in view, his intelligence chief Prince Bandar Ben Sultan has allegedly been accused of suffering from cognitive problems following an attack of which he was the victim in July 2012, whereas Prince Saoud al-Faiçal, the Foreign Minister for 38 years, is said to be affected by senility.

For a week, various sources have reported Prince Bandar’s hospitalization in the United States to undergo surgery. During this time, a special emissary was purportedly sent by Washington to Riyadh for talks with the King and his son.
