Saudi crown prince warns Turkey now part of 'triangle of evil'

Welby raises human-rights concerns during private meeting with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince

Around 200 demonstrators also lined up outside Downing Street, where the crown prince visited May.

The Downing Street spokesperson insisted May had raised the issue of Yemen with the crown prince.

One of the most important aspects of the Crown Princes' visit is to set the message that Saudi Arabia is a reliable partner and that the Kingdom is indeed open for business and is looking for global support for his internal economic reforms while at the same time trying to offer reassurance to nervous worldwide investors given the quick pace of internal reforms and anti-corruption campaigns to ensure a level playing field for all parties. More than 22.2 million there require food aid. The Save the Children charity protested the visit by installing a statue of a child near parliament "to draw attention to the violence that is being fuelled, in part, by British-made bombs".

The panel discussions and roundtables at the Saudi-UK CEO Forum focused mainly on women empowerment in Saudi Arabia and the transformations being taken place in both the kingdoms.

Wednesday's first official engagement was a trip to Buckingham Palace to see Queen Elizabeth - a rare honor usually reserved for heads of state. May said their close security cooperation had saved British lives. However, in recent years, the government has come under increasing scrutiny over its support in the western backed and Saudi-led war in Yemen.

The Saudi foreign minister, Adel Al Jubeir, has responded to the massive protests, claiming they are based on a "misunderstanding" of his country's military aggression against Yemen, the poorest Arab country.

"The meeting agreed a landmark ambition for around 65 billion pounds of mutual trade and investment opportunities over the coming years, including direct investment in the United Kingdom and new Saudi public procurement with United Kingdom companies", a spokeswoman from Prime Minister Theresa May's office said in a statement. "The prime minister and crown prince agreed on the importance of full and unfettered humanitarian and commercial access, including through the ports, and that a political solution was ultimately the only way to end the conflict and humanitarian suffering in Yemen", the spokesperson said.

It has laid the cornerstone for a long term mutual beneficial relationship Britain and sets out an ambition to build 65 billion pounds ($90.29 billion) of trade and investment ties in coming years.

He added that the Saudi-UK Strategic Partnership brings together eight joint programs. He went on to further criticise the Tory government for welcoming the prince.

'Wahhabism, a strict interpretation of Islam, dominates life in Saudi Arabia, and all Saudis are considered Muslims, ' Open Doors said on its website.
