France's Macron agrees with Riyadh on curbing Iran 'expansionism'

Further to news of the Paris deal, the BBC also reports that this year's Cannes Film Festival will see Saudi short films entered for the first time.

The Saudi regime can not hide its true color and whitewash its "black record" by spending billions of dollars to win the support of certain regional countries, Qassemi said, adding that Saudi officials needed to review history especially the fate of their long-time regional ally Saddam Hussein.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, traveled on Wednesday to Spain on an official visit.

The dinner, held behind a tight security cordon, sets the tone for the official part of the visit starting Monday, which follows a weeks-long tour of the United States, Britain and Egypt where he courted a host of multimillion dollar deals.

Asked whether France might consider following Germany's recent decision to end arms sales to Saudi Arabia, an Elysee source last week said French arms sales were subject to strict case-by-case approval procedures which considered concerns for civilians.

"If our alliance with our partners requires it, we will be present", Prince Mohammed confirmed.

This sequence - as well as Macron's planned trip to Iran, Saudi Arabia's arch-regional rival - is thought to have come up during a first round of talks between Macron and his Saudi visitor on Sunday night.

Amid the flurry of announcements, campaigners were mobilised to keep attention focused on French weapons exports to Saudi Arabia and rights abuses in the country.

Almost 10,000 people have been killed since the coalition joined the Yemen war in 2015, triggering what the United Nations has called the world's largest humanitarian crisis.

Three out of four French people believe it is "unacceptable" to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia, according to a poll last month by independent research group YouGov.

Macron stressed the need for "respect for global humanitarian law".

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia joined French President Emmanuel Macron in expressing concerns Tuesday over the worsening conflicts in Yemen, Iran and especially Syria.

The Iranian diplomat made the remarks after Saudi crown prince made new anti-Iranian claims this time in a visit to France.

"We will not tolerate ballistic missiles activities that threaten Saudi Arabia", Macron said.

Macron has also announced he plans to be the first French president to visit Iran since 1976 as he seeks to build relations with the two competing regional powers in the Middle East.
