Saudi Arabia, South Africa and localization of military industry

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz held a meeting with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on the sidelines of last week’s G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

The meeting was attended on the Saudi side by Minister of National Guard Prince Abdullah Bin Bandar Bin Abdulaziz and Deputy Defence Minister Prince Khaled Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz.

Reports from Riyadh suggest that Crown Prince Mohammad discussed with President Ramaphosa the obstacles that are still standing on the way of localizing the technologies of some South African-made weapons to the Kingdom.

Tactical Report has prepared a 352-word report to shed light on the meeting and tell what about the outcome, notably on what concerns the localization of the South African military technologies to the Kingdom.
