Qatar to overthrow Saudi regime: clip
Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem Al Thani
The Saudi Arabian monarchy will be overthrown by Qatar very soon, a leaked confidential conversation by Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem Al Thani has revealed.
According to an audio file which has gone viral on the Internet, the premier said Qatari troops would occupy Qatif in Eastern Province and the Al Saud regime will disintegrate.
"The regime of King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud is exhausted and powerless to control the country and the army cannot confront the future changes," he asserted.
The remarks were made as people in Qatif have been staging protest rallies to demand freedom and equality over the past months.
The Qatari premier also revealed that the United States and Britain wanted him to report back to them on the situation in Saudi Arabia.
"They want to get rid of the Saudi regime while they are afraid of any new Islamic regime in the region," Sheikh Hamad said.
"Therefore, Qatar has taken advantage to transfer US military bases to its country," he added.
Sheikh Hamad said Qatar also has been able to gradually reduce the dominance of Saudi Arabia in the region and impose itself on Arab countries.
Qatari state-run news channel Aljazeera has refused to comment on the audio clip.
Qatari officials did not confirm the report when Press TV contacted the Qatari Embassy in Tehran.
This is while several Arabic-language new agencies have covered the story.
