An exhibition showcasing the history and achievements of late Saudi King Fahd bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud is being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The two-week expo, which opened on March 31, is being held in tribute to the late monarch, under the patronage of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud..
Bahrain Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Shaikh Humood bin Abdulla Al-Khalifa visited the expo, being showcased at the Riyadh International Exhibition and Conference Centre.
The ambassador toured the commemorative exhibition, paying tribute to the late Saudi monarch for his rich legacy and lifetime achievements which stand as a source of pride and inspiration.
Shaikh Humood met His Royal Highness Prince Turki bin Mohammed bin Fahd Al-Saud, head of the executive committee in charge of the exhibition, being held under the theme: "Fahd – The Spirit of Leadership".
The program was concocted by the children and grandchildren of King Fahd in collaboration with the King Abdul Aziz Foundation (Darah).
The ambassador hailed deep-rooted historic relations bonding Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, lauding the concept of the exhibition which lines up also a series of seminars highlighting the achievements of King Fahd during his lifetime.
In a statement on the sidelines of his visit, he welcomed the idea of hosting the exhibition in Bahrain as part of long-standing cultural cooperation, paying homage to the late monarch for his honourable stances in support of Bahrain.
He cited in this regard the King Fahd Causeway, which stands today as an emblem of solid relations, pointing out that late Amir Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al-Khalifa had the initiative of naming the milestone after the late Saudi leader in 1986.
