Published: Updated:

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met with France’s Prime Minister Edouard Philippe in Paris on Monday.

The crown prince is set to hold meetings with President Emmanuel Macron during his two-day official visit. The trip follows a coast-to-coast tour of the United States as well as visits to Britain and Egypt.

Around 18 memorandums of understanding in energy, agriculture, tourism and culture are set to be signed at an official Saudi-France CEO Forum on Tuesday.

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