Saudi Arabia asks Iran to extradite Qaeda suspects
Saudi Arabia welcomes Iran's readiness to hand over any Saudi al-Qaeda suspects it may be holding and has already asked for their extradition, the oil-rich kingdom's interior minister said in remarks published Thursday.
"We have positive security cooperation with the Iranian authorities, and we are used to them handing over to us any detained Saudi suspects," Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz told Al-Hayat.
Riyadh has already asked Tehran to hand over any Saudi member of the al-Qaeda terror network detained in Iran, he said. (Albawaba.com)
