Iran hurls 'support for terrorism' charge back at Saudi Arabia

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met with Apple CEO Tim Cook during his recent Silicon Valley tour

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

"These red lines, which are shared by other powers, have nothing to do with the discussions taking place at the U.N. Security Council", Macron said alongside Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Also atop the agenda were the wars in Yemen and Syria; Saudi Arabia's regional rival, Iran; and the fight against terrorism and terrorist financing.

Qassemi said the Saudis should have this point in mind that they can not change their doomed fate by playing the blame game, buying security and sponsoring terrorist groups.

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

"Since the start of the conflict in Yemen, France has adopted a very specific process whereby all sales of military equipment are analysed on a case-by-case basis and on the basis of reinforced criteria that reflect respect for worldwide humanitarian law and the risk of harm to civilian populations", Macron said. Human rights groups also question how far the kingdom has come.

They allegedly discussed their access to coca fields, cocaine laboratories and US -registered aircraft to smuggle the drugs. The FARC long funded their insurgency by leveling a "war tax" on cocaine moving through territory the rebels dominated.

This marked a change of direction for Macron, who had previously clashed with Saudi Arabia after expressing he was committed to the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal.

Seventy-five per cent of French people want Macron to suspend arms exports to Saudi Arabia and the UAE, a YouGov poll found.

They signed a cooperation agreement on research and tourism at the Mada'in Saleh archaeological site in northwest Saudi Arabia.

The visit comes in line with the directives of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and in response to an invitation from the Spanish government. In total, $9 billion will be invested, the companies said.

HRH the Crown Prince met with President Emmanuel Macron, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister of Defense Florence Parly and Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire.
