The Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates said Monday he didn't believe Iran would build a nuclear bomb and that Tehran would find little use for the ultimate weapon.

During an interview with CNN, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum warned that if Iran attacks Israel the response would be too great for Tehran to deal with.

"What can Iran do with a nuclear weapon?" al-Maktoum asked during the interview with CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront". "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."
