Saudi Deputy Defense Minister Prince Khalid bin Salman held talks in Riyadh on Monday with British Defense Secretary Dominic Raab.

The officials discussed the unique bilateral ties and strategic partnership between their countries and ways to bolster them, especially in the defense field.

They also reviewed Saudi and British efforts to protect the region against any threats and their roles in consolidating international peace and security.

They tackled the developments in Yemen in wake of Saudi Arabia’s offering, earlier this year, of a comprehensive settlement to resolve its crisis.

The initiative will pave the way for a permanent and comprehensive political solution. More pressure must be exerted on Iran-backed Houthi militias to make them join efforts to resolve the crisis peacefully.
