Saudi Arabian Visit

Asked what to expect from the Saudi Arabian visit next week, the PMS said that there was not much to say at this point. There was a state visit from the King of Saudi Arabia; obviously they were an important ally for us and next week would be an opportunity to take stock of bilateral issues.

Asked if the Prime Minister would be raising any human rights issues with the King of Saudi Arabia next week, the PMS said that the Prime Minister would be raising whatever issues he considered to be relevant and important.

Asked if the Prime Minister had brought up the subject of human rights with President Erdogan on Tuesday, the PMS said there had been an opportunity to ask the Prime Minister questions at the press conference. He went on to say that the main issue discussed was the security situation in south-eastern Turkey.
