  • Saudi crown prince visits the Great Wall of China

An alumna was appointed as the first female ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the United States late Saturday.

Princess Reema wrote on Twitter after her appointment: "I will work with God's permission to serve my country, its leaders and all its children and I will spare no effort to that end".

Prince Khaled, Saudi Arabia's former ambassador in Washington, graduated from the King Faisal Air Academy in Riyadh and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF).

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud - supposedly on look out for new alliances has appeared to defend China's use of re-education camps for its country's Muslim population.

"In the eyes of many critics in the United States, the brother of the crown prince became implicated, rightly or wrongly", which has undermined his ability to effectively represent Saudi Arabia, Gerges said.

Princess Reema, who studied in America and is known in the kingdom for her philanthropic work, lived in the USA during her father's over 20 years as the Saudi ambassador there.

His new appointment as deputy defence minister comes as a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia remains bogged down in a four-year conflict in neighbouring Yemen. Nonetheless, the process of empowering women in the Kingdom is carried out according to strict criteria and positions are reserved to those who deserve them, as in the rest of the government employments.

Two Chinese companies and a Saudi company signed a cooperation agreement to establish a joint-stock petrochemical complex in northeast China's Liaoning province, the provincial development and reform commission said Friday.

Princess Reema has been championing the cause of women empowerment in the Kingdom strictly governed by the Islamic Sharia law where women are considered to have limited role in the society. The Saudi ambassador to the U.S. is also a keen activist for health awareness, as she founded Zahra Breast Cancer Association alongside Dr. Saud bin Amer that serves as an incentive for women to get tested and checked regularly. In 2014, Forbes included the Princess in the list of the 200 most powerful women in the Arab world.

The Crown Prince's visit follows trips to India and Pakistan, which send millions of laborers to Saudi Arabia and are seeking closer economic ties. She is also known for her fashion business and philanthropy.
