MOSCOW: Saudi Arabia is to open a new media office in Moscow in the wake of King Salman’s visit to Russia.
The office will promote communication and cultural exchange between the two countries and strengthen Saudi-Russian relations and dialogue, said Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Awwad Al-Awwad.
“The media office will promote community participation, put forward many academic discussions, expand research fields, encourage cooperation in the music domain and present cultural samples such as art galleries and patterns of inter-community interaction, in addition to promoting media and cultural exchange programs and communicating with other cultures and research centers in the host country,” he said.
The media office will be bilingual, and will act as a global bridge for the Arabic language and, at the same time, communicate with the audience in the host country’s language. It will open in January 2018.
The ministry has launched several new initiatives in the areas of new media and social networking, among the most important means of modern communication.
