Crown Prince MBS: Saudi Will Join Response to Chemical Attack If Needed

Since Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has been in America for a 3-week tour, this week he met with Google CEO Sundar Pichai and President of Alphabet Sergey Brin in Silicon Valley.

A Franco-Saudi deal to develop Al Ula, a Saudi city richly endowed with archeological remnants, is also set to be a central highlight of the visit, the source added.

"There are consultations underway with a number of countries with regards to what steps to take to deal with this issue", he said.Asked if Saudi Arabia would join any punitive military action against the Syrian regime, Jubeir said: "All I can say is that there are discussions on the options available to deal with this matter".

The Arms Under Control coalition's plea concerned Spanish manufacturer Navantia's planned sale of five warships to the kingdom, which the rights groups say would be used in Saudi Arabia's deadly military campaign against Yemen.

Macron waded into a regional crisis last November when Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri tendered his resignation on live television from Riyadh, apparently under pressure from the crown prince.

"He is marketing Saudi Arabia as a strategic and business partner to the West and a force of stability in the region, as compared to rival Iran which he presents as a destabilising force", he said.

"I can not think of a better partner for culture and art than France", Saudi Culture Minister Awwad Alawwad told AFP.

Ahead of prince Mohammed's trip to France, Saudi officials suggested relations were strong between him and Macron, both young leaders with reformist agendas. "They are both young, visionary and ambitious".

Macron faces a diplomatic tightrope in talks with the reformist prince as he seeks to bolster ties with the world´s top crude exporter, while also managing relations with Iran. Macron is only eight years older than the prince.

U.S. President Donald Trump canceled his first official trip to Latin America this weekend in order to "oversee the American response to Syria", the White House told reporters on Tuesday.

Spain and Saudi Arabia's royal families are very close as King Felipe VI's father Juan Carlos was a close friend of the kingdom's late King Fahd, who reigned from 1982 to 2005, and is close to his brother King Salman.

"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 global humanitarian law and the risk of harm to civilian populations", Macron said.
