Crown Prince Heads to Spain on Official Visit

Saudi Arabia has signed a deal with the Paris Opera

The Crown Prince will attend a luncheon banquet to be hosted by King Felipe VI at the royal palace in Madrid.

Pressure has been mounting on Macron to scale back arms support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which are leading the coalition fighting the Iran-aligned Houthi group that controls most of northern Yemen and the capital Sanaa.

In a Wednesday statement, Qassemi vehemently slammed the recent anti-Iran remarks made by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir during their visit to France. Cospedal was representing Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis who is accompanying Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on an official visit to Argentina.

The leaders of Saudi Arabia and France have both said that they could take part in military action in Syria after a suspected chemical attack killed at least 60 people in the eastern Ghouta region over the weekend.

"Our position is that those responsible have to be held accountable and brought to justice", he said.

He commented that the current moves of bin Salman are temporary short term solutions to help the Saudi monarch last for a longer time in the face of growing domestic discontent and global notoriety for war-crimes in Yemen.

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.

President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday that France agreed with Saudi Arabia on the need to curb Iranian "expansionism" in the Middle East, while also announcing a conference to boost humanitarian support for Yemen, where Riyadh is waging a bombing campaign. In total, $9 billion will be invested, the companies said.

Prince Mohammed, who was ending a three-day tour to France on Tuesday, has won Western plaudits for seeking to reduce Saudi Arabia's reliance on oil, tackle chronic corruption and transform the deeply conservative, mainly Sunni Muslim kingdom.

The kingdom also revealed Monday that it would enter short films at the Cannes cinema festival for the first time and send an official delegation to the celebration of often edgy and subversive silver-screen art on the Riviera this May.
