Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, met with Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Defense on June 27.
The following day, he will meet with his counterpart Adel al-Jubeir, who will take part in a panel discussion that will be open to the press, at the invitation of the Académie Diplomatique Internationale.
Jean-Marc Ayrault will review our common priorities together with his interlocutors: peace and security in the Middle East, including in Syria, Iraq and Yemen and the fight against terrorism. The discussions will also focus on the Middle East peace initiative.
The French-Saudi partnership will also be discussed, especially in preparation for the 3rd session of the French-Saudi Joint Commission which, by mutual agreement, will take place in the fall in order to take the “Saudi Vision 2030” – the Saudi reform plan – into account.
