Saudi prince makes religious freedom commitment in meeting with Justin Welby

Crown Prince and Defense Minister of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman al Saud arrives at Cairo International Airport in Cairo Egypt on 4 March 2018

British Prime Minister Theresa May defended her meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Wednesday as activists protested Saudi Arabia's involvement in Yemen's humanitarian crisis.

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.

A Saudi-led coalition has been battling Iran-allied rebels in Yemen since 2015 in a war that has killed more than 10,000 people and driven the Arab world's poorest country to the brink of starvation.

Back in Saudi Arabia, women were pictured enjoying their first ever driving lessons just weeks before the country's female driving ban is lifted later this year.

The crown prince will head to Chequers for talks and a private dinner with the PM today, that will focus on foreign policy issues, including Yemen and Iran.

Garry, a 35-year-old teacher who declined to give his last name, agreed.

Mohammed bin Salman's visit comes at a time when all eyes are on the heir to the Saudi throne to see what direction the Middle East superpower will take.

Labour MP Chris Williamson, who was in attendance at the protest, echoed the feelings of protesters during a speech. Should America be doing business with the Saudi regime?

The UK has increased its weapons sales by around 500 percent since the onset of the Saudi invasion, according to a report by The Independent.

The number caused widespread outrage and calls for May to end sales to Saudi Arabia. He had lunch with the Queen and other members of the royal family, before meeting the Prime Minister at Downing Street.

Speaking in parliament, May said Britain's relationship with Saudi Arabia was "an important and historic one", but she promised to raise "concerns about human rights" in her meeting with the crown prince. Saudi Ambassador to the United Kingdom said his country cannot modernize its economy without support from the West.

Is the crown prince aiming at bringing in foreign as well as political capital?

Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is in the United Kingdom for a three-day state visit. The reforms also include significant social changes, and whether by chance or design the Saudi event coincided with International Women's Day.

However, activists have warned against interpreting these reforms as heralding new freedoms.

The source noted that due to the shared Red Sea border between all the countries, it is necessary to establish an global framework to include Israel in the Saudi project.

Corbyn's spokesman added that ministers should be held "accountable" for the "very large numbers of children" killed and injured by the air strikes against Yemeni rebels.

The U.N. said Saudi Arabia was at the center of the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II. Theresa May is handing a major propaganda coup to the dictatorship.

During Prime Minister's Questions, the Prime Minister said that the Government was increasing aid to Yemen and was engaging with the Saudi government over ending the war.

"Arms sales may have been promoted by successive governments, but poll after poll has shown they are opposed by the vast majority of people in the United Kingdom".
