MINTPRESS NEWS -- Maziar Behrooz, an associate professor in the History Department of San Francisco State University, argues that the kingdom remains strong and united.

“Although the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, its internal and foreign policy is developed through a consensus among the ruling class, so the death of King Abdullah will not make a major difference,” Behrooz explained to MintPress. “Saudi policy toward the peace process, Iran or the oil issue will probably not change in a dramatic manner.”
