Archbishop urges Saudi prince Mohammed bin Salman to lift ban on churches

Archbishop urges Saudi prince Mohammed bin Salman to lift ban on churches”

In a statement on Thursday, Qassemi condemned London's "irresponsible" move to echo Riyadh's anti-Iran allegations.

It is amusing "that British officials take such stances and (make) such comments against Iran in a meeting with officials of a country like Saudi Arabia that has launched an aggression against Yemen and caused a human catastrophe and (committed) war crimes in this country and, for years, has been the main source, sponsor and supporter of extremism, terrorism and war mongering in the Middle East and the world", Qassemi said in a statement on Thursday.

"Today we have agreed to strengthen the United Nations inspection of shipping in order to ensure that all Yemeni ports remain open to the humanitarian and commercial supplies that Yemen's people so desperately need", Johnson said in an opening remarks at the start of his meeting with Saudi counterpart Adel Al-Jubier.

They "discussed Iran, agreeing on the importance of working together to counter Iran's destabilizing regional activity", according to the spokesperson.

Leading the war is bin Salman, who is also Saudi Arabia's defense minister.

People gathered outside May's office to protest Britain's role in the war on Yemen, which has left more than 13,600 people dead and destroyed the impoverished nation's infrastructure, plunging it to one of the worst humanitarian crises.

"Such concordance with Riyadh makes London's complicity in formation, escalation and continuation of crises in West Asia region even more than it already is, and it will also make the path toward peace and cooperation among regional countries longer, costlier and more hard", he said.

Both countries are keeping the trip as economically focused as possible to avoid more controversial topics such as the war in Yemen - which the British military is involved in despite public outcry - and British concern over human rights violations in Saudi Arabia - which May raised only vaguely in her meeting with the crown prince.
