Saudi king upends royal succession, names son as 1st heir

Saudi Arabia just gave government workers a very long vacation ( - Honolulu, Hawaii news, sports & weather - KITV

In Washington, the White House said in a statement that the two leaders expressed their shared commitment to "cutting off all support for terrorists and extremists, as well as how to resolve the ongoing dispute with Qatar". He was directly in charge of the Kingdom's foreign policy and rolled out an ambitious economic reform agenda previous year. In spite of this, six kings since the death of the first Saudi monarch in 1953 have been his sons, including the current King Salman. "The king needed to strengthen his son's position amid the current turmoil in the region".

Inside, they have prompted admiration among many younger Saudis who regard his ascent as evidence that their generation is taking a central place in running a country whose patriarchal traditions have for decades made power the province of the old.

That the royal succession in the world's top oil exporter is closely scrutinised only makes the rapidity of Mohammed bin Salman's rise to power, and the speed with which his better known cousins were brushed aside, more astonishing. The outgoing crown prince is heard telling him: "I will rest now, and God help you". "I will never do without your advice".

But support for Mohammed has not been unanimous.

So who is this new king-to-be? That could become financially problematic for the kingdom in an era of lower-for-longer oil prices.

The newly-minted crown prince has also used fighting words to describe Iran, vowing to take "the battle" to the Shiite-ruled country.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has welcomed the appointment of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman as the Crown Prince and Deputy Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia.

"It's clear that his relationship is excellent with the White House", said Mohammed Khalid Alyahya, non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council's Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. He retains defence, oil and other portfolios.

Tillerson's comments came in a short statement a day after the State Department bluntly questioned the motives of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in announcing their boycott of Qatar on June 5, saying it was "mystified" the Gulf states had not released their grievances.

The coalition's bombing campaign has drawn repeated criticism from human rights groups for the high number of civilian casualties.

McDonald's KSA, which stands for Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is a franchise operation which is owned by Riyadh International Catering Company.

Mohammed bin Salman has been seen as the architect of the anti-Qatar drive.

Qatar has denied the accusations and said the move to diplomatically isolate it was "unjustified".

Bin Nayef not only loses the titles of crown prince and deputy prime minister, but was also dismissed as interior minister.
