In Saudi Arabia changed the crown Prince
The king of Saudi Arabia deposed crown Prince and replaced him with Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Deputy crown Prince, according to the state news Agency.
Mohammed bin Salman, who is the son of king Salman, will now be first in line to the throne. He will continue his role as defence Minister in compliance with a Royal decree published by state media.
Mohammed bin Salman has always had a prominent role in the government and was headed by the attempts of the Kingdom to move away from oil as part of the economic strategy announced last year. He visited the United States in March, where we had lunch in the White house with U.S. President Donald trump.
Former crown Prince Mohammed bin knife bin Abdulaziz was also dismissed from the post of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of internal Affairs. In 2015 he was named crown Prince in what many called a unexpected movement of power.
On the reasons for changing the crown Prince is not reported.
Currently the Royal family of Saudi Arabia consists of 25 thousand members, of whom about seven thousand princes, and each of them could theoretically become ruler of Saudi Arabia.
