Saudi Crown Prince Commits to Interfaith Tolerance, Says Anglican Church

  • Paths to new careers open

Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry penned an op-ed in The Guardian slamming the government, saying: "Britain's red carpet for the Saudi ruler is shameless".

Campaigners against the war rallied near Parliament and said they would protest later outside the gates of Downing St. After 2015, there is an increase of nearly 500% in the sale of British weapons to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is striving to achieve real female empowerment, especially in the workplace, going beyond recent changes that allowed women to drive cars for the first time, said the country's energy minister.

Police said a man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after an egg was thrown at a police vehicle as bin Salman's motorcade arrived in Downing Street.

Prince Mohammed is on a three-day visit to Britain, which began with a lunch with Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday, and will see him hold the second of two meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May later Thursday.

United Kingdom director Kate Allen said: 'We'd like to see Theresa May finally showing some backbone in the UK's relationship with Saudi Arabia'.

The pair met at Downing Street for talks on reforms in Saudi Arabia, trade and investment relations and defence and security cooperation. "And it's different and it's not only about politics, or military, or intelligence, but also socially and economically".

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

The prime minister intends to use the private dinner at Chequers, a 16th-century manor house 40 miles (60 kilometers) northwest of London, to further press her concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, her spokesman said.

May defended herself when questioned by her political opponent, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, at the weekly "Prime Minister's Questions" session in parliament.

"I don't believe that someone like Mohammed bin Salman should be welcomed in Britain", said Hassan Yassine, a 25-year-old customer service worker from London.

He added that the Saudi-UK Strategic Partnership brings together eight joint programs.

The Archbishop also "voiced his distress at the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and asked that all that is possible be done to alleviate the suffering of civilian populations and to seek an end to the conflict", Lambeth Palace said.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been heavily criticised by some politicians and campaigners, who have accused him of funding extremism in the United Kingdom and carrying out human-rights abuses domestically and in Yemen. Iran responded by calling the Saudi crown prince "immature" and "weak-minded".

So could a Saudi woman ever become the chief executive officer of Aramco - the giant state oil company that's planning one of the largest initial public offerings in history?
