Saudi prince: Obama 'not been successful in our region'

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.

We can only say we can only hope he will give more attention to the Middle East, because it’s needed badly.
