On behalf of the US Mission to Saudi Arabia, I congratulate Arab News on its 40th anniversary.
Arab News has always helped me understand the local context and the Saudi perspective on regional and international developments.
Every morning I start my day with a cup of coffee along with my Arab News. With Arab News I am assured that I am keeping up with the latest news and getting these from a source I can trust.
I have been posted in Saudi Arabia for almost 8 years and I can’t recall a single day when I would not have read my daily edition of Arab News.
I would like to congratulate Arab News on this auspicious occasion of the 40th anniversary as the first English-language daily newspaper in Saudi Arabia.
I would like to congratulate the excellent team at Arab News on the occasion of their 40th anniversary celebrations.
It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the editors, journalists and all other employees of Arab News on the occasion of its 40th anniversary.
Congratulations on the 40th anniversary. This year is also the 60th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Saudi Arabia.
