A clearly-irked French President Emmanuel Macron was heard telling Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “you never listen to me” in a video captured during a break in the ongoing G20 summit Friday.
The comments were made during a private conversation between the two leaders about the murder of Saudi activist Jamal Khashoggi and the political crisis in Yemen, a French official told Reuters.
“You never listen to me,” Macron is heard saying in English in footage posted by the Saudi Gazette newspaper.
“No I will listen of course,” bin Salman says, also in English, in response before launching into a fit of laughter.
Macron, undeterred and continuing on with the conversation, later says “I’m a man of my word.”
