Talks turn to defense on final day Saudi crown prince's UK visit

Talks turn to defense on final day Saudi crown prince's UK visit

His Royal Highness the Crown Prince also inspected a number of British BAE Systems products made by Saudi trainees through the participation of Saudi companies working in the military field, and he was briefed on the company's future plans to further transfering, localization of technology, training and employment of Saudi citizens.

The partnership ties in with Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 initiative, which aims to showcase the country's desire to expand its business, leisure and tourism industries.

Golf's European Tour has agreed a long-term deal to stage a tournament in Saudi Arabia, marking the first time that a professional golf event has been played in the country.

"Saudi Arabia's pivotal role was prominent, contributing to the success of Prince Muhammad's historic visit to Britain", he said.




News of the long-delayed deal came after both countries had set a £65 billion trade and investment target for the coming years, broadening a trading relationship built on defence and security. Britain credits Saudi intelligence sharing with saving British lives and has licensed billions of pounds of weapons and ammunition sales to Saudi Arabia.

Although May noted that she would raise humanitarian concerns about Yemen in his meeting with bin Salman, she said all arms sales to Saudi Arabia were strictly regulated.

Addressing a business conference in London on Thursday, Kalid al-Falih said the United Kingdom should turn to Saudi Arabia as "your gateway to Africa, one of the next frontiers" and an alternative to lost European markets after Brexit, The Guardian reported.

Prince Mohammed's itinerary was largely private, including meetings with bankers, executives and lawmakers, and he did not speak publicly at any point during the trip.
