LONDON - The British government has no indication of "serious instability" in Saudi Arabia, Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday.

Asked how confident he was about Saudi Arabia's longer term stability, Hague told a parliamentary committee: "It is hard to foresee ... what happens in any of the nations of the Middle East.

"They are all introducing various degrees of reforms or various degrees of improvements to the lives of their own populations as a response to what has happened," he said.

"We have no indications of serious instability at the moment in Saudi Arabia. There have been some demonstrations," he said.
