Al Arabiya will air on Wednesday an exclusive interview with British Prime Minister Theresa May. The interview that was conducted by Turki al-Dakhil is the first for the British PM on an Arab satellite channel since she took office.

Turki al-Dakhil tackled the Iranian nuclear agreement, the future of relations between Britain and the Gulf and May's likely plans for the leaders of the GCC summit in Manama. The interview also covers a number of other hot topics concerning the Gulf, Arab and international scene.

The interview will be aired on Wednesday on Al Arabiya News Channel at 16.00 (GMT) (19.00 KSA time).

Theresa May was appointed prime minister on July 11, succeeding David Cameron who resigned after the Brexit referendum. May is the second woman to serve as UK prime minister after Margaret Thatcher, both of whom are Conservative Party members.

The British prime minister arrived in the Bahraini capital Manama to attend the 37th summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

In a statement she delivered before arriving, May announced that she wanted to initiate a new chapter of cooperation with the Gulf countries in the post-Brexit phase.

She also pointed to strengthening cooperation with the GCC to prevent terrorist attacks and increase Gulf investment in British cities.
