Saudi Crown Prince visits Trump in Washington

Tehran denied on Tuesday allegations made by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that Iran was harbouring Osama bin Laden's son and supporting him as the new leader of al Qaeda.

The authorities of Saudi Arabia are working on legislation that will equalize women's salaries with men's salaries, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said. Critics have labeled the crown prince's campaign a shakedown and power grab, although authorities insist the purge targeted endemic corruption as the country prepares for a post-oil era.

Although Prince Mohammed's statement appears to signal another opening for women's rights in the conservative kingdom, the prince's emphasis on "decent and respectful attire" means women will still not likely be allowed to wear whatever they would like to.

The purchase closed on March 19, a day before MBS and U.S. President Donald Trump meet at the White House.

The United States and Saudi Arabia are historic allies.

As they talked, US senators debated a resolution seeking an end to USA support for Saudi Arabia's campaign in Yemen's civil war, in which about 10,000 people have been killed.

Though Trump insisted during the campaign he had proof these women were all lying and vowed to sue them, no lawsuits materialised. But it's that same case that Zervos' attorney, Gloria Allred, argued supported the idea that Trump couldn't pause the litigation.

But critics are cautioning the White House not to blindly embrace every stance taken by the Saudi prince, particularly as concerns its role in the bloody civil war in Yemen. The Senate rejected the resolution.

Insisting on peaceful intentions, the Kingdom has signed cooperation agreements with over a dozen countries in recent years to boost nuclear cooperation, including France, China and Russian Federation. He has a close relationship with Trump and his son-in-law and aide Jared Kushner, who is seen as having given the green light for Prince Mohammed's rush to consolidate power in recent months.

"I can't imagine that the United States will accept one day to have a militia in Mexico launching missiles on Washington D.C., NY and LA while Americans are watching these missiles and doing nothing", MBS said, defending the Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen against rebels, which has escalated the humanitarian crisis there.

A bipartisan movement to curtail US support for the Saudi-led military intervention has been growing in Congress, with the Senate possibly voting as early as this week on a measure that would limit the military's ability to continue aiding Saudi efforts in Yemen.

"I'm not Gandhi, or Mandela".

Bin Salman has been in the United States for a number of days and participated in an extensive 60 Minutes interview over the weekend.

"If you look at China over the last 20 years and you look at its higher education system, they've shown what can be done with careful and thoughtful strategic approaches and with appropriate levels of funding", he said. Stock exchanges in NY and elsewhere are vying for the worldwide listing of Aramco, the Saudi oil behemoth expected to go public soon. The New York Stock Exchange is among the possible venues for the listing.

The Saudi call for tougher action comes in the wake of Trump's repeated calls for a new Iranian deal and his administration's $350 billion commitment to a new American-Saudi arms deal.

"But Iran has not been treating that part of the world or the world itself appropriately".

The 123 agreement refers to section 123 of the 1954 US Atomic Energy Act, which establishes a cooperation agreement for nuclear deals between the US and any other nation.
