UK’s Cameron In First Saudi Arabia Visit


David Cameron was Friday making his first visit to Saudi Arabia since becoming Prime Minister, Downing Street confirmed.

Cameron was meeting the Custodian of the Two Holy Shrines King Abdullah Bin Abdul-Aziz and Crown Prince Nayif in talks which Downing Street hopes will “broaden and deepen” the UK-Saudi relationship.

Saudi Arabia is Britain’s biggest trading partner in the Middle East with bilateral trade worth 15 billion pounds a year and Saudi investment in the UK worth more than 62 billion pounds.

The UK Government sees strong relations with the Saudis as vital to advancing Britain’s interests in the region on a range of issues including energy security, counter-terrorism, Iran, Syria and political reform.
