LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May will raise Britain’s concerns over the humanitarian situation in Yemen with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman when he visits the country later this week, her spokesman said on Monday.

“What you can expect her (May) to do is to raise our concerns at the humanitarian situation there,” the spokesman told reporters.

“She will acknowledge the steps taken recently by Saudi Arabia to address the crisis but stress the importance of full and unfettered humanitarian and commercial access, including through the ports.”
