"Today an agreement was signed with the Paris Opera to help Saudi Arabia set up a national orchestra and an opera", said Francoise Nyssen, the culture minister of France, during a joint press conference with his Saudi counterpart Awwad Al-Awwad.

A French lawyer representing the Legal Center for Rights and Development filed the suit against the crown prince, now in France on an official visit, for his leading role in the Saudi-led coalition's airstrikes against Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The association claims that the prince is complicit in the instances of torture in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia is leading a military campaign in support of one of the sides in the civil war.

On Yemen, where Saudi Arabia has led an worldwide military coalition since 2015 and waged a blockade that has sparked widespread condemnation, Macron stressed the need for "respect for global humanitarian law".

Human rights groups have accused Saudi Arabia of targeting civilians with airstrikes.

"We will continue to be extremely vigilant on this point", he said.

The French president defended weapons sales to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, but said he was concerned by the humanitarian situation and would host a conference on the issue before the summer.

Just last November, Hariri surprised the world by tendering his resignation on live television from Riyadh, apparently under pressure from Prince Mohammed.

France traditionally has been a major arms supplier to the Saudis, but French officials said no big weapons contracts were planned to coincide with the crown prince's three-day official visit. In total, $9 billion will be invested, the companies said.

In a trip that appears focused on tourism, culture and the arts, the prince's delegation is set to host a forum Tuesday morning with multiple French business titans, which could trigger a host of memorandums of understanding.

In earlier meetings during the Saudi heir's visit, Macron and Salman announced plans to work on a "strategic document" involving a series of contracts to be signed by Macron during a visit to Saudi Arabia later this year, his office said.

When asked whether Saudi Arabia could be part of such a response, Jubeir declined to comment.

After Paris, he will head to Madrid, before travelling home ahead of the next Arab League summit meeting, on April 15 in Riyadh.
