(MENAFN - Arab News) Senior saudi officials shoura council members and academicians called on the united kingdom on tuesday to take a 'leading role" in resolving the syrian crisis as many of the west's policies on both syria and iran risk the stability and security of the middle east. they also called on the uk to adopt more aggressive policy on regional issues especially on syria and work closely with allies including the kingdom.

officials and academicians were speaking during the inaugural session of the first workshop entitled 'saudi-british relations" on tuesday night. several speakers and participants both saudi and british expressed their disappointment and dissatisfaction on the international response to the systematic genocide carried out by assad regime saying that the crisis continues unabated.

the two-day saudi-british workshop organized jointly by the riyadh-based institute of diplomatic studies (ids) and the london-based chatham house was officially launched by ambassador khaled al-jandan undersecretary for bilateral relations at the ministry of foreign affairs. the first session of the workshop was co-chaired by abdulkarim h. aldekhayel ids director-general and baroness emma nicholson uk trade envoy who is responsible for trade at the british house of lords.

several shoura council members including mona abdullah saeed al-mushait hoda abdulrahman al-helaissi and elham mahjoob ahmed hassanain were present.

on behalf of britain nicholson and julian reilly deputy chief of mission at the british embassy addressed the opening session. saud mousaed al-tamamy adviser at the ids center for european studies spoke very candidly and comprehensively on the obstacles that hamper the ties between two nations.

in his inaugural address al-jandan gave an overview of the progressively growing saudi-british relations. 'the uk was among the first nations to recognize the kingdom in 1926 which led to the opening of a saudi embassy in 1930" he said. 'the uk-based saudi embassy at that time was the second official diplomatic representation of the kingdom abroad." a plan to hold second workshop in london has also been announced by chatham house.

the event which concluded wednesday was also attended by sara birke middle east correspondent for 'the economist" who spoke on trade and economic issues.

the ids which is working closely with chatham house is a state-owned saudi institution under the ministry of foreign affairs with the mandate to work in the field of diplomacy diplomat's training and policy research.
