Saudi-British Agreement on the Need to Deter Iran's Threats

"For years, Saudi Arabia has been the main source, promoter, and sponsor of extremism, terrorism, and warmongering in the Middle East and the world", he went on to say. The Prime Minister raised the situation in Yemen with the Saudi royal.

His remarks came on the second day of a controversial visit to the United Kingdom by the country's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Plans were finalised this week during the visit to London of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the man seen as the oil-rich country's key driver of reform.

Keith Pelley, CEO of the European Tour, said: "We are very excited to be talking the first steps toward bringing professional golf to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the first time and I must thank His Royal Majesty, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for his vision in making this happen".

Demonstrators staged a massive protest outside Number 10 Downing Street during the Prince's visit over both countries' role in Yemen in a war which has killed an estimated 10,000 people.

The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the repetition of the baseless allegations indicates an inability on the part of the two Arab countries to deal with the realities of the region and the world, he said.

It is expected that all countries, including Britain, put pressure on Saudi Arabia to stop the war and bloodshed in Yemen and end exporting extremist ideologies, he said, calling on all countries not to trade global peace and security with their temporary economic interests.

Her statements were interrupted briefly as opposition lawmakers cried "Shame!"

Mrs May defended the UK's ties with Saudi Arabia earlier this week, saying all arms sales are strictly regulated.

She also underlined her government's support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015 to reinstall its former Riyadh-allied government.
