From Middle East Eye:
Contract is not certainty as Saudi Arabia cuts spending amid falling oil prices that mean drop in revenue

Spain’s King Felipe VI met on Sunday with Saudi King Salman, official media said, during a visit coinciding with talks to sell Spanish warships.
Felipe, 48, was guest of honour at a lunch hosted by Salman, 81, who decorated him with the cordon of King Abdul Aziz, the highest Saudi honour for a foreigner, the Saudi Press Agency said.
Later they discussed relations between the two nations and how to further develop them “in various fields”, it said.
They also reviewed the situation in the Middle East, before Felipe held separate talks with Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed Aljadaan and Minister of Commerce and Investment Majed al-Qasabi.
The Spanish king arrived late on Saturday in Riyadh for a three-day stay.
Madrid’s foreign ministry said its minister Alfonso Dastis, and Public Works Minister Inigo de la Serna, would accompany Felipe during the visit.
Spanish media have linked this trip to a much-anticipated deal to sell Avante 2200 frigates for $2.1bn.
“We can only confirm that negotiations are very advanced to build five warships which would be sold to the Saudi navy,” a spokesman for state-owned Spanish ship builder Navantia told AFP.
The contract is not a sure thing, as Saudi Arabia is slashing spending amid falling oil prices that have caused a drop in revenues.
This year’s budget allocates $51bn for Saudi military spending including equipment and weaponry, down slightly from 2016.
Spain is the seventh-largest arms exporter in the world, and Saudi Arabia is one of the biggest buyers of military gear.
