The Saudi army is completely ready for any development in the Gulf region, Saudi Deputy Defence Minister Prince Khaled Ibn Sultan said Sunday. 


The army is capable to ensure security of the kingdom, he noted. The retired general, who was in command of multinational forces during the Kuwaiti crisis in 1991, stressed that Saudi airports would not be closed if a war in Iraq is launched, the al-Jazeera newspaper quoted him as saying on Sunday.
