Turkey termed as 'triangle of evil' by Saudi prince

Early on Wednesday, the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, criticised the Prime Minister and her government's lack of criticism of the Saudi regime, arguing that "it can not be right that the U.K.government is colluding in what the United Nations says is evidence of war crimes".

During the meeting, they reviewed the Saudi-British relations in various fields and the opportunities to develop them.

The Prime Minister also raised the situation in Yemen with the Saudi royal.

Protesters gathered near Parliament and outside Downing Street for the Prince's arrival in London.

But when Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud meets Theresa May, the demonstrators will protest against the role of the two countries in Yemen, where the war has killed about 10,000 people, 8.3 million people depend on food aid, and 400,000 children suffer from life-threatening levels of malnutrition.

Yemen has been embroiled in a bloody civil war since 2014 when rebels took over the capital city of Sanaa.

May should "make clear Britain's strong opposition to widespread human and civil rights abuses in Saudi Arabia", Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said.

The organisation said since his appointment in July 2017, 133 people had been executed compared with 67 in the previous eight months.

"We also hope the Archbishop was able to express concern over the ongoing jailing of peaceful critics of the Saudi government, including the prisoner of conscience Raif Badawi".

He's a prince, he's Saudi and he's Britain's best friend.

"The Kingdom's logistic services are the core of local production, filling gaps in the fields of oil, gas and renewable energy, contributing to global competitiveness and exporting the Saudi services and goods that will be between the Kingdom and Britain, as the Kingdom did with the United States of America, China and others", he said, adding that the Saudi-UK Strategic Partnership brings about eight joint programs where the United Kingdom is the third state dealing with Saudi Arabia in addition to USA and China.

Despite some criticism from politicians on the left and anti-war campaigners to the visit, the overall message is clear - both Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom will stand to benefit from a closer relationship with each other rather than drifting apart.

Mr Johnson rejected claims that the United Kingdom was involved in directing the military campaign.

The panelists discussed various aspects of the opening up of opportunities for women in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been hailed as a moderniser however human rights group say he has seen executions double. Following his lunch with the queen, the crown prince dined with Prince Charles and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, in the evening.
