The Franco-Saudi relationship is characterized by long-standing relations of friendship. High-level exchanges and joint projects in many fields testify to the solidity of the strategic partnership between the two countries.
In a column for Arab News on French National Day last year, Gouyette, wrote: “The Franco-Saudi relationship relies on common strategic interests, as well as on a broad convergence of views on the major issues (such as peace, security and development) and challenges (including sustainable growth and health) of the 21st century. On all regional and international topics, Paris and Riyadh maintain a close and constant dialogue to coordinate their efforts.”
Through the implementation of Saudi Vision 2030 and in shared approaches to major international challenges, the envoy said that France and Saudi Arabia are fully mobilized to maintain the strong relationship.
