Saudi Arabia, Spain sign security co-operation agreement
Spain and Saudi Arabia have signed a security co-operation agreement, which covers any future defence sales between the two countries.
The agreement was announced in Madrid on 19 May, following the return of a Spanish ministerial delegation to Saudi Arabia led by King Juan Carlos.
King Juan Carlos has been involved in a series of trade missions around the Gulf Cooperation Council nations in recent weeks, starting with the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, which is aimed at boosting Spanish trade with the region, particularly in the areas of defence and infrastructure. janes
