"France is potentially an accomplice to serious violations of humanitarian laws by selling weapons and military equipment to Saudi Arabia", said Aurelie Perrier from Amnesty International at a protest near the Eiffel Tower.

"These people should know that by levelling baseless accusations against Iran and harbouring their delusions about the country, they can not close their eyes to this reality that all regional states and nations as well as close observers of the regional and worldwide developments are fully aware of Saudi Arabia's role in creating, sponsoring and arming the terrorist and violent groups like ISIS in the region", he noted.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has arrived in Madrid for his first official visit to Spain.

Pressure has been mounting on Macron to scale back arms support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which are leading the coalition fighting the Iran-aligned Houthi group that controls most of northern Yemen and the capital Sanaa.

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

Macron, for his part, said there remained differences with Riyadh over the 2015 Iran nuclear accord, but said the two countries saw eye to eye on the need to "limit Iran's ballistic activity and regional expansionism".

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman expressed hope that France must have reminded the Saudi leaders of the fate of previous Middle East dictators and aggressors in the region. Macron plans to visit the kingdom, which will be represented at the Cannes Film Festival for the first time next month, at the end of the year. Cospedal was representing Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis who is accompanying Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on an official visit to Argentina.

Macron hosted a gala send-off dinner for the crown prince at the presidential Elysee palace.

Saudi national oil company Aramco and French oil giant Total also announced a deal worth $9bn that would see the construction of a petrochemical complex in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
