The Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has done a lot to Turkey. He calls the country part of a ‘triangle of evil’, alongside Iran and extremist Islamic groups.
Salman spoke with journalists during a visit to Cairo. “The contemporary triangle of evil consists of Iran, Turkey and extremist religious groups,” he said according to the Egyptian newspaper Al-Shorouk.
