Many important international issues were discussed, from the Ukraine-Russia war to the crisis in Lebanon. It is stated that the visit is important on the ground of the Middle East and in the changing international balance.
It is commented that France, as the only Western actor that maintains its ties with the Gulf countries and Iran, has recently tried to return to the Middle East scene.
At the end of the visit, it is stated that it is aimed to move the Paris-Riyadh relations forward.
The top priority for Macron is the Russia-Ukraine war
According to the statement made by the Elize Palace, the priority issue for the President of France was the Russia-Ukraine War.
