Saudi Arabia and France will sign several agreements and memoranda of understanding (MoU) on the sidelines of the Saudi’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman’s visit to Paris, according to Saudi ambassador to France Khaled al-Anqari.

“The visit will further bolster the historic relations between the two countries,” he said while emphasizing that these solid and strategic relations are based on mutual respect and promotion of common interests, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Al-Anqari noted that the Saudi-French political positions and views are identical towards most of the global issues, particularly with regard to the Middle East issues.

The deputy crown prince first met with French President Francois Hollande at the Élysée Palace, which lasted for 45 minutes. He will then meet French Prime Minister Manuel Valls at the government headquarters. Later on, he is scheduled to meet with French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.
