Saudi Foreign Minister Prince
Saud Al Faisal expressed strong support for the goals of the
UN resolution on Libya at a meeting with British prime
minister David Cameron in London on Tuesday, Cameron's office
said.

"On Libya, the prime minister set out the action we were
taking in support of implementation of UNSCR 1973. Prince Saud
expressed strong support for the aims of UNSCR 1973 and the
steps being taken by the international community to enforce it,"
a statement said.

Cameron's spokesman also said Bahrain had been discussed and
that Britain supported political dialogue the Bahraini
government says it is seeking to establish.

Britain encouraged all parties to take part in those talks,
the spokesman said.

Cameron said Bahrain's approach "needed to be based on the
principle of reform to address the legitimate aspira0tions of the
people of Bahrain".

Bahrain has imposed martial law and called in troops from
fellow Sunni-ruled neighbours, including Saudi Arabia, in a
crackdown on protests by its majority Shi'ites.
