The Prime Minister has expressed his sadness at the death of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, and paid tribute to his work for peace in the region.

The king died yesterday aged 90, and his successor is to be his 79-year-old half-brother, Prince Salman.

David Cameron, who visited Saudi Arabia in 2012, said: “I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, His Majesty King Abdullah bin Abd Al Aziz Al Saud.

“He will be remembered for his long years of service to the Kingdom, for his commitment to peace and for strengthening understanding between faiths.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the Saudi Royal Family and the people of the Kingdom at this sad time.

“I sincerely hope that the long and deep ties between our two Kingdoms will continue and that we can continue to work together to strengthen peace and prosperity in the world.”
