What good does a Saudi delegation visiting the grand synagogue of Paris do?

Supposedly this is part of a warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. But what I want to know, and I'm sure plenty of others do too, is if the Saudi delegation visiting the Paris synagogue are offended by Muslim antisemitism that devastated the Jewish community in France:
Secretary General of the Muslim World League Dr. Muhammad Abdul-Kareem al-Issa, who previously served as a Saudi justice minister, and Khalid bin Mohammed Al Angari, Riyadh’s current ambassador to France and a former Saudi education minister, were received in the French Jewish community’s largest house of worship, reported the Jerusalem Post.

Among the religious leadersto greet and escort the Saudis at the Great Synagogue of Paris were the Chief Rabbi of France, Chaim Korsia, and the Rabbi of the Grand Synagogue, Moshe Sebbag.

As part of the visit, Rabbis Sebbag and Korsia permitted the Saudi dignitaries to view a Torah scroll and discussed the meaning behind various adornments in the sanctuary’s interior. The Saudis remarked that it was their first visit ever to a synagogue, reported the Post.

The interfaith visit in Paris arrives as Israel and Saudi Arabia appear to be preparing to strengthen diplomatic relations. Notwithstanding Saudi Arabia’s historical animosity toward Israel, and the notorious anti-Semitism of the kingdom’s founder Ibn Saud, both Middle Eastern nations face an ascendant Iran, bolstered by the nuclear agreement it signed with Western powers in 2015 that left the Islamic Republic flush with cash and free to continue developing its “non-military” nuclear program.
But are they going to play any part in combatting antisemitism locally? And will Jews ever actually be able to enter Arabia without being forbidden by Islamofascism? In fact, are the Jewish reps even going to confront the Islamists about any of their own ideology? If not, then I don't see much positivity resulting from this meeting.
