Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman headed to France on Tuesday on an official visit.

The visit follows an invitation from the French government, which stated Prince Mohammad is due to meet French President Francois Hollande and other senior officials.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, Prince Mohammad is set to discuss bilateral ties between Saudi Arabia and France.

The visit comes after the deputy crown prince’s official trip to Russia last week, in which he held talks with President Vladimir Putin and top Russian officials.

Following the meetings, Saudi Arabia on Thursday signed six agreements with Russia including the peaceful use of nuclear technology, Al Arabiya News Channel reported.

Saudi Arabia is the top producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and the world’s top oil exporter, while Russia, which is not an OPEC member, is the second biggest oil supplier to the global markets.
