All smiles as Lebanon’s Hariri shares selfie with Saudi crown prince

JEDDAH: Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri shared a selfie early Saturday with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and his brother .
The image, which will likely go viral on social media in both countries, was posted to Hariri’s Twitter account shortly after 2 a.m. in the Saudi capital. It shows the trio smiling as they pose for the snap.
The selfie, taken with a slight tilt, shows Hariri in the foreground and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his country’s ambassador to the US Prince Khaled bin Salman behind him.
The relaxed leaders are seen in casual dress with the crown prince wearing what appears to be a dark winter thobe with the prime minister in a zip-up pullover, and the Kingdom’s top US-based diplomat in a classic white thobe with the collar buttons undone.
The Saudi Press Agency reported that Prince Mohammed and Prime Minister Hariri discussed bilateral and regional issues on Friday.
Hariri was welcomed by King Salman in Riyadh on Wednesday in his first visit back to the country since he announced his resignation in the kingdom.

Riyadh Art will transform capital into open art exhibition

RIYADH: Minister of Culture Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan thanked King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Thursday, for the launch of several projects aimed at improving the quality of life in the Kingdom, including Riyadh Art — a project that will reportedly involve the world’s largest government investment in public art.
Prince Badr said in a statement that Riyadh Art, through the implementation of more than 1,000 works of art, will transform the capital city into “an open art exhibition” reflecting the spirit of Saudi Arabian traditions in a modern way.
By bringing together artists and specialists from across the world, he added, the Kingdom will reap intangible returns, including intellectual and aesthetic enrichment.
