“The two sides also discussed the importance of supporting international efforts aimed at establishing security and stability in Syria, and supporting all peaceful solutions,” the ministry added. “They also discussed the need to stop all Iranian interference in Syria that fuels the conflict and destabilizes the country and the region.”
Prince Faisal met his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian to discuss aspects of the bilateral relationship and ways of enhancing it in various fields to serve common interests. They also exchanged views on regional and international issues.
He met his Dutch counterpart Sigrid Kaag and talked about ways to strengthen Saudi-Dutch relations.
