Saudi says countries talking on options to deal with Syria gas attack

Saudi says countries talking on options to deal with Syria gas attack

Macron said he would decide "in the coming days" on his response, in conjunction with the USA and Britain.

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.

"If required by our alliance with our partners, we will be there", he said, according to the French translation of his remarks spoken in Arabic.

The French president defended weapons sales to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, but said he was concerned by the humanitarian situation and would host a conference on the issue before the summer.

The flurry of announcements by the French president came as campaigners mobilised to keep attention focused on French weapons exports to Saudi Arabia and rights abuses in the country. Yemeni rebels have launched ballistic missiles at the kingdom.

Press reports, experts and non-governmental organizations have documented multiple violations of global humanitarian law by the Saudi-led coalition, resulting in the deaths of many civilians, including bombings of homes, markets, hospitals, businesses and schools, the lawsuit said. "Yet we are attached to the respect of worldwide law and especially humanitarian law in Yemen".

Human rights groups have expressed concerns about the crown prince's visit, and a lawyer representing one group filed a lawsuit Tuesday in France accusing him of complicity in torture in Yemen.

He and Macron stated their conflicting views over the Iran nuclear deal, which both Saudi Arabia and the USA strongly criticize.

When asked about civilian casualties, the crown prince said the coalition was doing everything to avoid civilian casualties in Yemen, but that mistakes were inevitable in conflicts.

Macron insisted there was no better option than enforcing the nuclear deal, but also pushed for post-2025 proposals to ensure the security of the region.

Ahead of the trip to France, Saudi officials suggested relations were strong between Macron and the crown prince, both young leaders with reformist agendas.

They signed a cooperation agreement on research and tourism at the Mada'in Saleh archaeological site in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia also revealed 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 next month. In total, $9 billion will be invested, the companies said.

The two leaders plan to work on a "strategic document" involving a series of contracts to be signed by Macron during a visit to Saudi Arabia later this year, the French leader's office said.
