Saudi Arabia-Japan sign pact for archaeological study in Tabuk
Saudi Arabia and Japan have signed an agreement to conduct further archeological
excavations at Al-Hawra in Tabuk’s Umluj governorate.
The pact was inked Sunday by Dr. Jasser
Al-Harbash, CEO of the Heritage Commission in the Kingdom, and Dr. So Hasegawa,
professor at Japan’s Waseda University.
Japan’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Fumio Iwai was
present at the signing ceremony.
The team has already uncovered items of historical
and cultural significance at the site, which is believed to have played an
important role in trade from the coast.
