French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Saudi Arabia on a surprise trip, Thursday night, coming from the United Arab Emirates and met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who welcomed him at the airport, reported Saudi Press Agency.

Macron said he made the decision earlier in the morning about heading to Saudi Arabia, in part over Houthi militia in Yemen launching a ballistic missile that targeted Riyadh, the Kingdom’s capital and to discuss issues concerning Iran. He bluntly blamed Iran for the attack, saying that while he still supported Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, a new agreement needed to be reached over Iran’s missile program.
