In an exclusive interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, the UAE's prime minister, Sheikh Mohammed, discussed the Arab Spring–and the state of freedom and protest inside his own country.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, and Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, discounted concerns about a nuclear-armed Iran in a CNN interview Monday, saying Tehran would find the ultimate weapon to be of little use. He told CNN's Erin Burnett that he did not believe Iran would build a bomb. "What can Iran do with a nuclear weapon?" he asked. "For example, will they hit Israel? How many Palestinians will die? And you think if Iran hits Israel, their cities will be safe? They will be gone the next day."
