    Britain wants accountability over Khashoggi murder - PM May

    Britain wants to see accountability for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Saudi Arabia should investigate the death thoroughly and in a way that adheres to international laws, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. Last week, a U.N. rights investigator said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and other senior officials should be investigated over the murder, given credible evidence against them. "We do want to see accountability for this horrific murder... We expect Saudi Arabia to take the action necessary to ensure such violations of international and national laws can't happen again," May said in parliament.

    UPDATE 3-U.S. Senate rejects Saudi arms sales in rebuke to Trump

    The U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to block the sale of billions of dollars in military sales to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other countries, rejecting President Donald Trump's decision to sidestep Congress' review of such deals by declaring an emergency over Iran. Trump has promised to veto the Senate action in order to proceed with the deals, worth some $8.1 billion. Senators would need 67 votes to override his veto, which looked unlikely after Thursday's votes.

    BAE Systems will fulfill UK-Saudi contracts after arms export ruling

    Leading British defence firm BAE Systems said on Thursday it would continue to support the government in its agreements it has made with Saudi Arabia following a court ruling that Britain had granted arms export licences unlawfully. "We continue to support the UK Government in providing equipment, support and training under government to government agreements between the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia," BAE Systems said in a statement after the ruling, which does not halt exports but means Britain will pause issuing new licences. "We will assess the result of the UK Government's reconsideration of its decision-making on the basis set out by the court, once it has been made," it said, adding it complied with all relevant export control laws.

    Saudi Arabia says ending British arms exports would help Iran

    Iran would be the only beneficiary of any end to arms exports from Britain to Saudi Arabia, the kingdom's minister of state for foreign affairs said on Thursday, adding that the deployment of weapons in Yemen was legitimate. A UK court earlier found that Britain broke the law by allowing arms sales to Saudi Arabia that might have been used in Yemen's war. The ruling does not halt Britain's arms exports but means the granting of new licences will be paused.

    Saudi Arabia says Iran has created "very grave" situation in Gulf

    Iran has created a grave situation and jeopardised global oil supplies with its aggressive behaviour, Saudi Arabia's minister of state for foreign affairs said on Thursday, adding that the kingdom was consulting with allies on next steps. The United States and Saudi Arabia are among countries that have blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, a major transit route for global oil supplies. "I think the situation is very grave because of the aggressive behaviour of Iran," Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in London.

    UK suspends new arms export licences to Saudi-led coalition

    The UK has suspended granting new export licences for arms that might be used by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition in Yemen while it considers a landmark court ruling that found the government’s decision-making processes were unlawful. The Court of Appeal in London ruled on Thursday that the government had to assess whether the Saudi government violated international human rights law in its military campaign in Yemen before ministers approve further arms sales to the Gulf kingdom.

    Britain acted unlawfully on Saudi arms exports, court rules

"The decision of the court today does not mean that licenses to export arms to Saudi Arabia must immediately be suspended," he said. The case was brought by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade against the British government.

    BAE is still paying the price for former strategy

    Mr Turner was the person who promoted the sale of BAE’s 20 per cent stake in Airbus in 2006 for a giveaway fee. Mr Turner at the time as I recall accused people like me who opposed the sale (as a shareholder, like many of my work colleagues) of “being wedded to aerospace”. Some of us believe in building great companies, others believe in building great share prices.

    Political risks hamper BAE’s battle to revive share price

    When BAE Systems chairman Roger Carr met US president Donald Trump in London this month it underlined the importance of the American market to the British defence group after its share price was hit by domestic political uncertainties. As the UK’s biggest defence company and a key supplier to the Pentagon, BAE is one of a handful of companies with genuine clout on both sides of the Atlantic. Its British factories build the rear fuselage for the US-led F-35 fighter jet programme and its American operations make amphibious assault vehicles for the marines.

    Terms of the all-U.S. deal announced Sunday suggest investors are “agnostic” about the relative outlooks for the civil aerospace and armaments industries, Jefferies International analyst Sandy Morris said in a note on the combination. BAE’s price-earnings valuation, which trails behind Airbus, could also be boosted if Europe agrees to build a new warplane developed from the current Typhoon, in which the U.K. company is a key partner, he said.

    CORRECTED (OFFICIAL)-UPDATE 2-Eyeing China, Pentagon briefs Congress on rare earth minerals report

    The U.S. Defense Department has briefed Congress on a report on rare earth minerals as it looks to reduce American reliance on China, a Pentagon spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday, amid mounting concern in Washington about Beijing's role as a supplier. Although the Pentagon did not provide details of the report, it said the document was tied to a federal program designed to bolster domestic production capabilities through targeted economic incentives. Rare earths are a group of 17 chemical elements used in a wide range of consumer products, from iPhones to electric car motors, as well as military jet engines, satellites and lasers.

    U.S. President Donald Trump, declaring a national emergency because of tensions with Iran, swept aside objections from Congress on Friday to complete the sale of over $8 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. The Trump administration informed congressional committees that it will go ahead with 22 military sales to the Saudis, United Arab Emirates and Jordan, infuriating lawmakers by circumventing a long-standing precedent for congressional review of major weapons sales.
