Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday signed a diplomatic training agreement with the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

The deal was signed by Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Waleed Al-Khuraiji and Lord Tariq Ahmad, the British minister of state for the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Commonwealth and the UN at the FCDO, during a remote meeting that was held via video call.

The agreement involves a cooperation program between the Prince Saud Al-Faisal Institute for Diplomatic Studies at the Kingdom’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the FCDO of the UK and Northern Ireland, the Saudi ministry said in a statement.
