France’s Macron condemns Houthi missile launch at Riyadh

JEDDAH: French President Emmanuel Macron condemned on Thursday a recent Houthi missile launch toward the Saudi capital, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
Macron met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh where they discussed the developments in the Middle East and efforts being exerted for regional security, including joint coordination in the fight against terrorism.
The pair also discussed opportunities to further develop bilateral cooperation within Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030.
The meeting was attended by Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and a number of officials.
Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a ballistic missile on Saturday night aimed at Riyadh.
Saudi defense forces intercepted and shot down the missile, and there were no casualties.
The Houthis have now launched 78 missiles at Saudi Arabia, including one aimed at Makkah in July, since the Saudi-led coalition began fighting to restore the legitimate government in Yemen in March 2015.
