"The decision is entirely left for women to decide what type of decent and respectful attire she chooses to wear".

In fact, the USA has a broad range of tools at its disposal as the kingdom's primary security guarantor; Washington should use both carrots and sticks, including promises to assist with resolving Saudi energy and security challenges as well as an explanation of the consequences for circumventing US proliferation concerns by way of Russian Federation or China, in order to strike an agreement with Saudi Arabia that is as close as possible to the Gold Standard. Saudi concerns with NY include a post-9-11 law that could jeopardize assets in the United States if victims' families claim Saudi Arabia helped the al-Qaida attackers and sue for compensation. In recent years, Saudi women have started wearing more colorful abayas as well as more open ones over jeans or long skirts.

"More than 90 per cent of pious Muslim women in the Muslim world do not wear abayas", Shaikh Abdullah Al Mutlaq, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, the kingdom's highest religious body, had said, adding: "So we should not force people to wear abayas".

"They want investors to come in, but if you're an investor now why would you go to Saudi Arabia if you know your investments might not be safe and you know the state can just come in and confiscate your financial assets?" said Andreas Krieg of King's College London.

Saudi Arabia's interest in nuclear power is motivated by two concerns.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has announced that women need not dress in the black abaya often seen as their expected attire throughout the kingdom.

"We are all human beings and there is no difference".

"We have extremists who forbid mixing between the two sexes and are unable to differentiate between a man and a woman alone together and their being together in a workplace", the crown prince said. "Many of those ideas contradict the way of life during the time of the Prophet (pbuh)", he said. "This is the real example and the true model". The women are now allowed to attend mixed sporting events as well.

"We're going to continue to assist Saudi Arabia with its legitimate defense needs", the official said, "but also. push them" toward a "political solution" to the conflict.
