French President Emanual Macron hosts Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) in France today.
- Macron wants Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter, to raise production.
- The meeting follows two weeks after Biden flew to the Middle East with a similar agenda that failed to yield any results.
- Instead, Saudi and its partners have reiterated that oil production targets are an OPEC+ matter and have failed to take a political stance on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
