Yemen war protest greets Saudi Crown Prince

ANewSaudiArabia Electronic billboards show adverts for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman with the hashtag next to the A4 in London

Furthermore, Kuwait started to mediate between the tiny Gulf emirate and the boycotting countries, where Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad arrived to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday in an attempt to bring the views closer.

Campaigners against the war rallied near Parliament and said they would protest later outside the gates of Downing St.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar last June, suspending air and shipping routes with the world's biggest exporter of liquefied natural gas, which is home to the region's biggest USA military base. The Saudi war in Yemen is entering its fourth year with no end in sight and without the Saudi-led coalition being able to claim the upper hand though Bin Salman did tell the Egyptian media on Monday the war was nearing its end, having achieved its goals.

The protest was organised by the Stop the War Coalition, War on Want, Global Justice Now and the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in UK. It includes a blockade that the United Nations says has left more than eight million civilians facing a starvation.

It comes as Jeremy Corbyn accused the government of "colluding" with war crimes over Saudi Arabia's ongoing involvement in the Civil War in Yemen.

HUNDREDS gathered outside Downing Street to protest as British Prime Minister Theresa May held talks inside with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Prince Mohammed's trip is aimed at building a broader economic partnership between the two countries.

He will also meet with Prime Minister Theresa May at her rural retreat, Chequers, and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson to discuss terrorism and military co-operation.

Yet, according to statistics compiled by the Campaign Against Arms Trade, the United Kingdom has licensed 4.6 billion pounds worth of weapons sales to Riyadh since the conflict began, with the STWC citing the presence of British advisers directly involved in the military campaign.

May and Crown Prince Muhammad met at Downing Street for talks on reforms in Saudi Arabia, trade and investment relations and defense and security cooperation. Since his father became king in 2015, Prince Mohammed has leapfrogged other Saudi royals to become his Sunni kingdom's undisputed leader.

Earlier, junior foreign minister Alistair Burt responded to an emergency question in parliament about the visit by defending Britain's arms deals with Saudi, saying the regulations were "as strict as anywhere in the world".

Despite the demonstrations, however, British officials said they hoped to capitalise on the Saudi economy's opening up. That's not really the actions of a terribly reforming leader, is it?

"He is helping Yemen and I support Saudi bombing".

"The crown prince has overseen the brutal repression and abuse of Saudi people, as well as awful atrocities that have been carried out against the people of Yemen", Andrew Smith, head of CAAT, told Al Jazeera. "Yemen needs to be protected from the Houthis", said the activist, who is originally from Taiz.
