Article written by

80 Rafale aircraft bought by France from the United Arab Emirates for 17 billion euros. A contract for which Emmanuel Macron traveled to Dubai on Friday 3 December.

That was one of the main reasons for Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates: a heavy order, 80 Rafale aircraft for 17 billion euros, “the greatest in our history”specifies Guillaume Daret, live on location for France 3. An agreement that Emmanuel Macron welcomes: “He explains that there will be more spin-offs in France in terms of jobs and the economy than the famous Australian submarine deal.”reports the journalist.

In Doha, Qatar, on Friday evening, December 3, Emmanuel Macron has to speak specifically about the fight against terrorism. “A state that is often accused of being lax on certain individuals funding terrorist organizations”, specifies Guillaume Daret. The French President will end his visit to Saudi Arabia. A trip that drew criticism from several NGOs: Emmanuel Macron is the first to meet the Saudi crown prince after the 2018 assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
