Nawaf Obaid is an underling and in no way speaks for the Saudi royals. For their part the royals don't like this deal either__strangely the Wahabbist Kuwait and Qatar love the deal as does Dubai/UAE.Iran nuclear deal: Saudi Arabia warns it will strike out on its own
Nawaf Obaid told a think tank meeting in London that Saudi Arabia was determined to pursue its own foreign and policy goals. Having in the past been reactive to events, the leading Sunni Muslim nation was determined to be pro-active in future.
Mr Obaid said that while Saudi Arabia knew that the US was talking directly to Iran through a channel in the Gulf state of Oman, Washington had not directly briefed its ally.
"We were lied to, things were hidden from us," he said. "The problem is not with the deal struck in Geneva but how it was done."
