In a rare interview, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has told ITV News that he has hopes that President Obama's second term will see him focus more on the Middle East:
Frankly speaking, Obama has not been very successful in our region here. I hope a second term will prove to be different to his first term.
Right now, I think with the economic situation in the States stabilising, Europe stabilising, he can give a lot more attention to the Middle East.
We can only say we can only hope he will give more attention to the Middle East, because it’s needed badly.
