UK PM says links with Saudi Arabia ‘saved British lives’

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May greets the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman outside 10 Downing Street in London.

:: Prime Minister Theresa May defended Britain’s links to defense and security ally Saudi Arabia in parliament on Wednesday, saying cooperation had helped save the lives of hundreds of people.

“The link that we have with Saudi Arabia is historic, it is an important one, and it has saved the lives of potentially hundreds of people in this country,” May said in response to a question from opposition Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

“We are seeing reforms in Saudi Arabia and encourage it,” she added.

May’s statement came as Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived at her office at 10 Downing Street later in the day following his meeting with the Queen.
