King okays landmark exhibition

July 7 - Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah has issued a royal decree for a landmark Saudi heritage exhibition to tour a number of European capitals and US cities after the show at Paris' Louvre museum.


The Chairman of the Saudi Commission for Tourism & Antiquities (SCTA) Prince Sultan bin Salman expressed his gratitude to the king for the gesture, describing the "Archaeology Masterpieces of Saudi Arabia Through the Ages" exhibition as a way to introduce a historical dimension of the Kingdom's culture to the world.


Prince Sultan also pointed out the importance of the Kingdom's historical values and archaeological masterpieces in history. He added that the Kingdom was, for the first time, exhibiting a large number of its archeological masterpieces outside the country, reflecting its outstanding international position as an Islamic country that hosts the Two Holy Mosques, its economic role and its impact on human relations.

The exhibition opens on July 12 in Paris.
