Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

Saudi Arabia is said to be working with Egypt and Jordan on attracting more European cruise and tourism companies active in the Mediterranean to consider operating in the Red Sea as well.

The Crown Prince will pay a visit to the United Kingdom on March 7 to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May, prior to his visit to the United States on March 19 to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump.

During his visit the Crown Prince will be having private meetings with the heads of MI5, MI6 - he has also been granted rare access for a visiting foreign dignitary to a meeting of the National Security Council.

"The relationship between Saudi Arabia and Britain is historic and goes back to the foundation of the Kingdom", he told The Telegraph's Con Coughlin.

'We believe that Saudi Arabia needs to be part of the global economy, ' he said in an interview with the Telegraph.


'We have a common interest that goes back to the earliest days of the relationship. 'People need to be able to move freely, and we need to apply the same standards as the rest of the world.

Which explains why Prince Mohammed is going out of his way to stress the importance of the UK-Saudi relationship during this week's visit to Britain.

Speaking about the impact of this visit on investments in Egypt, Fahmy said it would encourage Saudi and Gulf businessmen to increase their investments in the Middle East country, which offers promising investment opportunities.

Promoting a more moderate form of Islam is one of the more ambitious promises made by Prince Mohammed under plans to transform Saudi and reduce its reliance on oil.

Crown Prince Muhammad said: "People in Saudi Arabia have changed a lot because they travel to countries like Britain and see a different way of life".


"Nigeria is involved in the Saudi Arabia led Islamic Military Alliance to fight global terrorism and we look forward to benefiting from participating in the Alliance".

'We want economic growth that will help the region to develop.

Neom is Saudi Arabia's bold plan to build a 26,500-sq-km, $500bn industrial zone from scratch in the mountainous desert region in the country's northwest, on the coasts of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba.

He said Britain was "very supportive" of the Kingdom's concerns over Iran and other regional security issues.
