Why Saudi Arabia Opted for Israel over Pakistan?

According to the report, the Israeli government is well aware that Saudi Arabia would work towards developing nuclear weapons and wanted to ensure that no other regional rival like Pakistan is in the fray for helping the Saudi regime.

According to Dor-On, Pakistan has already indicated that it is ready to share “nuclear expertise” with Saudi Arabia “within a month” should the arms race intensify in the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia was the principal financier of Pakistan’s nuclear program. It is believed that Saudi royals took the initiative in the 1970s after finding out that Israel and India had already started to develop their own nuclear weapons.

According to various defence experts, the close proximity between Mohammad bin Salman and PM Benjamin Netanyahu, a common regional rival in Iran, Israel’s advanced technology & dominant position in the global arena with strong backing from the United States were key factors why Saudi would have preferred Israel over Pakistan.
