French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian commended Saudi Arabia’s leadership in the fight against terrorism at a joint press conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Jeddah on Saturday.

Jubeir said he has assured the French foreign minister of the kingdom’s “refusal to finance and support terrorism,” also stating that they will provide France with a full file of the abuses committed by Qatar.


Le Drian said France praises Saudi’s role in “halting terrorism and extremist thought,” and that France calls for dialogue between the boycotting countries and Qatar, adding that the country hopes the actions will not have an effect on Qatari citizens.

He also said that an agreement was reached with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on creating a joint committee between the two nations, which will include both political and military spheres.

He concluded that France hopes to cooperate with Saudi Arabia on implementing Vision 2030.
