Saudi Aramco to build giant oil complex with French Total

Saja Kamal

Saudi Ambassador to Spain Prince Mansour said that the choice of Spain by the Crown Prince to include in his current visit to the major world powers showed the depth and strength of the bilateral relations that bind the two great nations.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing the tiny but super-rich Gulf state of supporting militant groups and forging close ties with Iran.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman told reporters Tuesday that if necessary, his country will join other allies in a response to the chemical attack on the Eastern Ghouta town of Douma in Syria this past Saturday.

Macron also announced that France would co-organize with Saudi Arabia a conference on humanitarian aid for Yemen, where a civil war has been fought since 2015.

"We will continue to be extremely vigilant on this point", Macron said.

Macron said he would decide "in the coming days" on his response, in conjunction with the USA and Britain.

He and Macron stated their conflicting views over the Iran nuclear deal, which both Saudi Arabia and the USA strongly criticize. "It is obvious that we will not tolerate any ballistic activity that threatens Saudi Arabia".

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman urged the Saudi officials to have retrospective look at what happened to their staunch regional ally, Saddam, the notorious dictator of Iraq who oppressed Iraqis for 24 years of a tyrannical police state, to take their lesson from the not so past contemporary history of the region that buying security from cross-regional countries will not have a happy ending. Macron plans to visit the kingdom, which will be represented at the Cannes Film Festival for the first time next month, at the end of the year.

On Monday, the prince held a surprise meeting with Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri, as well as talks with France's foreign and defence ministers.

He will host the prince for a gala dinner at the Elysee Palace on Tuesday. In total, $9 billion will be invested, the companies said.
