Should Trump Welcome the Saudi Crown Prince?

What To Know Before You Visit Saudi Arabia

A United Nations report a year ago claimed that 1340 child victims of the conflict wwere recorded in 2016 in Yemen, at least 683 (51%) are the result of bombing raids carried out by Riyadh jets.

Saudi Arabia's support for the peace plan that U.S. President Donald Trump's administration is putting together was also discussed, notwithstanding the fact that the plan's details have not officially been revealed. It might be a short visit with a lot of symbolism and photo opportunity events but beneath it lies issues of more substance and importance to both sides.

The government introduced physical education for girls a year ago and began licensing women's sports clubs, but Saudis are still coming around to women running in public. They are advising directly on the targeting of infrastructure and operations in Yemen.

"The regime has carried out atrocities against Saudi people for decades, and has inflicted a bad humanitarian catastrophe on the people of Yemen". Targeting of civilian infrastructure, hospitals and schools, which has happened on a large scale.

Saudi Arabia is the main player in a coalition supporting the Yemeni government against the Houthis in a war which has caused a humanitarian catastrophe.

"Short term arms sales profit should not be valued above human rights and we should not be giving more practical and PR support to the Saudi regime after we've already licensed almost 5bn worth of arms since the Yemen war began", Turner told Al Jazeera.

"The overwhelming majority of people in the U.K.do not share Theresa May's political and military support for the Saudi regime", Andrew Smith of Campaign Against the Arms Trade said according to The Independent.

"It can not be right that her government is colluding in what the United Nations says is evidence of war crimes".

The ruling Conservative Party and the royal family will be rolling out the red carpet for the Crown Prince.

The prime minister intends to use the private dinner at Chequers, a 16th-century manor house 40 miles (60 kilometers) northwest of London, to further press her concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, her spokesman said.

But she insisted that the Saudis were right to taken military action.

People protesting against Saudi Arabia's involvement in the deadly Yemen War lined the streets of Whitehall earlier on Wednesday, with pro- and anti-Saudi posters and ad campaigns being displayed all over the capital.

"She will also reiterate how seriously we take allegations of violations against global humanitarian law and emphasise the need to ensure that these are investigated swiftly and thoroughly".

Similar images have also been appearing in newspapers, most notably next to an opinion piece in The Guardian criticisng Saudi's intervention in the war with Yemen.
