Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has just begun his European tour, with the first leg of his journey taking him to Paris, the Middle East Monitor reported, citing Al Arabiya TV.

During his three-day stay in France, Prince Mohammed will meet with French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday to discuss Yemen, Syria, and Iran’s nuclear deal.

Paris and Riyadh are also expected to announce a joint tourism deal, set to take place in the near future.

Macron is under pressure by his people for wanting to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia, who, according to a YouGov opinion poll, believe it is unacceptable to sell weapons to the Kingdom because of its actions in Yemen.
