    (ANSAmed) - ROME, MARCH 8 - Great Britain and Saudi Arabia are ready to invest 90,2 billion dollars in bilateral trade over the next few years, Arab News reports. The investment was discussed during a meeting at Downing Street between the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and the British Premier Theresa May against the backdrop of plans to sell shares in the kingdom's oil company Aramco on international markets. Prince Salman was also received by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles.

    However during question time on Wednesday Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn attacked the Conservative premier for Britain's alleged "collusion" with Riyadh, which he accuses of indiscriminate bombing in Yemen. Corbyn asked May to suspend the massive arms supplies to Saudi Arabia and raise the matter with the prince. (ANSAmed).
