OIC condemns terrorist attacks in Somalia, Mali

Mon, 2020-07-06 00:40 JEDDAH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) general secretariat strongly condemned a suicide attack in Mogadishu and a terrorist bombing in Baidoa in Somalia that resulted in deaths and injuries, the Saudi Press Agency reported. The secretariat also condemned a terrorist attack that targeted villages in Mali that killed civilians and military personnel, while also wounding others. The secretariat offered its sincere condolences to the families of the victims, the government and the people of Somalia, wishing a speedy recovery to the injured. It reiterated its strong condemnation and rejection of violence and terrorism in all its forms, affirming that the OIC stood with Somalia in the fight against terrorism and extremism. The secretariat also condemned a terrorist attack that targeted villages in Mali that killed civilians and military personnel, while also wounding others. At least seven people were wounded on Saturday when a suicide car bomber tried to strike a police post in front of the port in Mogadishu. Security forces shot the suicide bomber and the vehicle exploded, police said. In the outskirts of Baidoa, four people were killed when land mine detonated in a restaurant. Ali Abdullahi, an official with the Southwestern regional state, told The Associated Press that the mine was detonated by remote control as people were dining during the morning rush. Several others were wounded, he said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab group has targeted the city in the past In Mali, armed men massacred 31 civilians in simultaneous attacks on several villages last week, then killed nine soldiers responding to the assault as violence surges in the country’s conflict-wracked center. An Islamist insurgency that erupted in the north of the vast West African country in 2012 has swept to its center, inflaming ethnic tensions along the way. Clashes between the ethnic communities of Fulani, nomadic herders, and Dogon traditional hunters have increased in recent months, with community-based militias — initially formed for defense — now launching attacks.

$800bn plan to turn Riyadh into cultural hub for the Middle East

Mon, 2020-07-06 00:57 DUBAI: Saudi Arabia is launching a SR3 trillion ($800 billion) plan to double the size of Riyadh in the next decade and transform it into an economic, social and cultural hub for the region. The ambitious strategy for the capital city was unveiled by Fahd Al-Rasheed, president of the Royal Commission for the City of Riyadh, ahead of key meetings of the U20, the arm of the G20 leaders’ summit that deals with urban development and strategy. “Riyadh is already a very important economic engine for the Kingdom, and although it’s already very successful, the plan now, under Vision 2030, is to actually take that way further, to double the population to 15 million people,” he told Arab News. “We’ve already launched 18 megaprojects in the city, worth over SR1 trillion, over $250 billion, to both improve livability and deliver much higher economic growth so we can create jobs and double the population in 10 years. It’s a significant plan and the whole city is working to make sure this happens.” About $250 billion in investment is expected from the private sector, with the same amount generated by increased economic activity from population growth, finance and banking, cultural and desert tourism, and leisure events. HIGHLIGHTS 18 megaprojects have already been launched worth over $250 billion. 7 million trees planted in Riyadh in the next few years. King Salman Park will be bigger than Hyde Park in London. “We must also ensure the growth is managed properly, so there will be a focus on transport and logistics, including the Riyadh metro which will open at the beginning of next year. The aim is to increase productivity,” Al-Rasheed said. The plan involves the creation of a “mega industrial zone” focusing on advanced technology such as renewables and automation, and biotechnology and aquaponics. Another key feature is sustainability, with energy conservation, the circular carbon economy with its emphasis on reducing emissions, and water management, all priorities. “You will see 7 million trees planted in Riyadh in the next few years, and King Salman Park will be bigger than Hyde Park in London,” Al-Rasheed said. The city also aims to be a Middle East artistic and cultural hub. An opera house is being considered, as well as public art shows with 1,000 works commissioned from around the world. “We have not seen anything like it since Renaissance Florence,” Al-Rasheed said. The plans will be discussed this week during online meetings of the U20 linking Riyadh with Houston. The Texas oil capital is suffering a new spike in coronavirus cases and pandemics will be on the agenda. “We want to deal with this one, but also be ready for the next one,” Al-Rasheed said.

Saudi Arabia aims to lead world in achieving green goals, says energy minister

Author: Zaynab KhojjiID: 1593958521683307900Thu, 2020-06-25 17:33 JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia intends to be a world leader in efforts to improve the planet through the use of more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy initiatives, according to Minister of Energy Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman. Speaking during “Don’t Forget Our Planet,” a virtual event organized by the Future Investment Initiative, he said that the Kingdom will play a pioneering role in movements such as solar energy and the circular carbon economy — a new approach to fossil-fuel emissions and greenhouse gasses in which the “four Rs” will apply: reduce, reuse, recycle and remove — to alleviate environmental damage and revitalize the planet. Saudi Arabia holds the presidency of the G20 this year, and will host the annual summit in Riyadh in November. The prince said that the platform and status that comes with this honor is being used to promote CCE as a worthy common goal not only for the nation, but the entire world. “We believe that CCE is an excellent enabler for maintaining our sustainability, and it also mitigates environmental issues,” he said. “It’s an excellent solution that will attend to all of these concerns: to bring growth and economic prosperity, mitigate energy poverty and enable 2.6 billion people that don’t have the means to cook, bring electricity to 850 million people devoid of any (source of) electricity, and attend to the issue of plastic and how to make it more usable, and mitigating food packaging without the need to cut trees.” Prince Abdul Aziz pledged that the Kingdom will lead by example in achieving these green goals. “We have a serious efficiency program when it comes to domestic consumption of electricity,” he added. “By 2030, 50 percent of our electricity will come from renewables, and the other 50 percent will come from hydrocarbon gas. It will be the most efficient power sector in the whole world — and I’m willing to lay money on that.” The minister also teased a new solar-power project, to be revealed very soon, which he believes will be a global leader in terms of cost. In addition, he predicted that within 50 years, the Kingdom will have the best hydrocarbon sustainability program on the planet. “We’re not only producing electricity through solar power but also wind power, and we’ll be expanding on that,” he said. “We are breaking records and are willing to compete with a lot of people who claim they can do it better.” The minister also addressed two key issues that are being discussed with world leaders as G20 initiatives: increasing global forestry levels, and improving coral life, both of which he said the Kingdom will commit to. Prince Abdul Aziz, who was appointed minister of energy in September last year, said his first nine months in office have been challenging. His term began with an oil-supply crisis caused by the attacks on processing facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais, and in recent months he has been dealing with difficulties caused by the coronavirus crisis, and efforts to limit its effect. “COVID-19 gives us the opportunity to live up to the challenge and be sure that while mitigating the impact of the virus itself, we still are adhering and attending to our sustainability objectives and growth,” he said. The main objective of the FII conference was to agree sustainable recovery strategies and how they might improve the world. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, FII chairman and governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, said the aim was to find answers to pressing matters with a focus on sustainability, a goal he believes can be achieved if the public and private sectors work together. “The importance of public-private partnerships to help drive a sustainable recovery cannot be overstated,” he said. “There is tremendous power in multiplying unique strengths and assets toward shared goals and mutual benefits.” Jane Goodall, a renowned scientist and UN Messenger of Peace, talked about the importance of respecting nature and all living beings to avoid future health crises. “(Scientists) have been predicting a pandemic like this for so long now,” she said. “It’s because of our disrespect for the environment and animals that this has come about.” The wildlife advocate also recommended that the youth of the world be empowered and given a greater voice for change. “We haven’t been borrowing the planet from our children, we have been stealing it,” she said. “If we get together with them, listen to them, empower them, help to fund some of their projects — they’re now planting millions of trees — then we can look forward to a much better world.” French Secretary of State Brune Poirson said the world needs a modern-day, green version of the Marshall Plan, a reference to $15 billion aid initiative, spearheaded by US Secretary of State George C. Marshall, in 1948 to help rebuild Western Europe after the devastation of World War II. She added that the world needs to unite, without bias, to help ensure all countries have access to sustainable solutions. The participants also sent messages and recommendations for change to the leaders of G20 nations. Lord Adair Turner, chairman of Energy Transitions Commission, said: “We need massive investment in green electrification, strong investment in building and energy efficiency, and investment in the key technologies needed for the future in order to dramatically accelerate the pace of progress.” The fourth annual meeting of the Future Investment Initiative is due to be held in Riyadh in October. The theme will be “response to the imperative of the re-energizing of the global economy through the collective sustainable action.” Since its launch 2017, the initiative has emerged as a leading global investment platform.

UAE embassy in Riyadh launches virtual exhibition to bring people closer together 

Author: Zaynab KhojjiID: 1593966883683830400Sun, 2020-07-05 19:52 JEDDAH: In an effort to continue supporting artists in the region and further enhance bilateral cultural ties, a virtual art exhibit is bringing artists and art enthusiasts closer. The UAE Embassy in Riyadh launched a virtual exhibition, gathering together young and prominent artists from the two countries as an invitation to the community to get closer through art.  The exhibition titled “Closer Through Art” began earlier this month, joining 25 artists from different backgrounds and ages in a virtual experience that imitates the experience of the gallery in an attempt to feel close when physically distant during the COVID-19 pandemic that prompted the Kingdom and UAE to close its borders for travel.  The exhibit also allows art enthusiasts to enjoy such experiences and engage with artists from their homes as it helps visitors to connect with artists through their social media accounts. It also invites the public to explore the arts and realize their importance in the lives of nations.  Abdulaziz Alabdulaziz, a Saudi artist and photographer, participated in the exhibition with his work titled “Cocoon,” which represents connection and coherence.  “Participating in this exhibition at such a time is very important because arts played an essential role in bringing us together during the pandemic when we had to stay apart as a means of treatment,” Alabdulaziz told Arab News.  Saudi artist, Tagreed Al-Bagshi, has always represented the values of peace, hope and determination in her work. And at times like this, Al-Bagshi believes artists play an important role in documenting the current historical, cultural and societal moment, a mission which she took on herself.  She participated with a painting that aimed to freeze the current historical moment and express the current behavioral interactions in society and its impact in the long term while employing her higher values of hope and peace. “I also wanted to send a message of hope and remind others that all that’s happening today will soon become part of our memories,” Al-Bagshi told Arab News. Artist Asrar Al-Qarni participated with a painting titled “Can you see me?” to express feelings of loss. “In these circumstances in which the entire world lives in, we need art as a means of comfort and consolation, even if it is not tangible,” she told Arab News.  “In my work, I wanted to remember the losses and say that even when people leave, their souls and memories remain with us,” she said. Al-Bagshi thanked the UAE embassy for organizing the exhibition. “I am really thankful for them giving us the opportunity to create something beautiful, innovative and educational out of nothing,” she said. “This initiative is introducing new horizons to our art scene and our perceptions about arts and galleries.” The virtual exhibition can be accessed on the link https://artconnects.mofaic.gov.ae Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaUAERiyadh Call of the deep: Saudi divers resume sport with a raft of essential safety precautionsSaudi driving school implements new safety measures

Sun, 2020-07-05 00:02 JEDDAH: It’s almost business as usual again for many across Saudi Arabia after the lifting of lockdown — and divers are more excited than ever to be back at sea. Divers in the Kingdom are following the safety precautions issued by the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Health and the General Directorate of Border Guard. Lujain Shugdar, diving instructor at Jeddah’s Natlus Divers and two international organizations — the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) and SNSI — and who has taught more than 150 students, said that the group had been on six diving trips since the lifting of lockdown. Although international flights are yet to resume to the Kingdom, with the abundance of beautiful coral reefs along the Red Sea, Shugdar said that she wanted diving to be one of the main tourist activities in Saudi Arabia. “The Red Sea is one of the most beautiful seas in the world for diving; it will greatly encourage tourism in the Kingdom. I want to encourage tourism in the Kingdom — whether for locals to enjoy or have divers from abroad visit us (later on),” she said. With more than 30 years of service, Natlus offers many different activities such as free-diving, technical diving and recreational diving. Shugdar said that Natlus were following the directives of the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Health to comply with full safety standards. She explained that as directed by the authorities, the number of divers and people on a diving boat was half its normal capacity. “We sanitize the boat and equipment before people board it. We also make sure all safety devices are working, and we add additional oxygen cylinders on board in case there is a need to use it. It’s usually one cylinder, but now we will add one regular cylinder and another big cylinder on the boat.” “Before starting the trip, divers will be briefed on the hygienic and safety measures and social distancing rules, with a full explanation on how to use sanitizers and face masks. There will also be gloves and they will be changeable; a closed waste bin will also be available on board,” she said. One can sense her feeling of relief and excitement after months away from the sea. When the authorities announced the return of diving and watersports activities, Shugdar immediately booked a diving trip. “The sea is where you relieve stress from your personal and work life. It has a huge impact on one’s happiness and well-being. I’m so excited about this decision, and of course will follow all safety precautions to ensure our health and the health of the divers with us on board,” she said. Saudi diver, Mishael Abdulaziz, 29, said that diving was one of the least likely sport activities to transmit COVID-19 as equipment was not usually shared. “We don’t usually share equipment. Equipment is only shared during the very rare event of an out-of-air emergency,” she told Arab News. “An out-of-air emergency is when one of the divers runs out of air unexpectedly due to poor planning or inattentiveness to the pressure gauge or air supply. In this instance, a buddy will share his or her air with the out-of-air diver.” Even though dive centers thoroughly clean their equipment, many divers are encouraged to buy their own regulators as opposed to renting them to further avoid transmission. Saudi-based Captain Issam Kalasina, King Abdullah Economic City’s (KAEC) Bay La Sun Marina Watersports and Yacht Club operations manager, said that they were very happy with the return of the activity, but there was a need to exercise caution. Kalasina, who has been in the diving business for 42 years, told Arab News: “We are very happy to come back and resume the activity — with a certain limit. “Only half the capacity is allowed on board at the moment to avoid social distancing issues and to ensure all safety precautions are being met on board. The number of passengers has been limited to half,  captain and crew included,” he said. Kalasina said that following the safety precautions required by the pandemic, captains were assigned to have on board gloves, masks, gel sanitizers and liquid sanitizers. “The gel sanitizer is for the hands, and the liquid sanitizer is for objects on the boat,” he said. “The boat is completely sanitized and rinsed before we accept passengers on board; it is then sanitized and rinsed again after the trip is over.” Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: CoronaviirusNatlus DiversSaudi diversProfessional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Saudi Arabia’s tourism body organizes ‘Tourism Diving’ event in YanbuScuba diving in Red Sea: Family adventure finds new depths

Preserving heritage means securing the future, says Princess Haifa

Author: Sun, 2020-07-05 02:12 PARIS: Princess Haifa bint Abdul Aziz Al-Muqrin, the Kingdom’s permanent representative to UNESCO, said that changes can only be faced with global efforts to achieve the common goals of promoting peace, building cultural bridges between nations, and empowering societies to guarantee a better future. Saudi Arabia recently participated in the 209th session of the UNESCO Executive Council at the agency’s Paris headquarters. The Kingdom was represented at the session by Princess Haifa and a team of 26 Saudi experts from different sectors that have activities related to the scope of UNESCO’s work, such as education, culture, energy, environment, and training. Princess Haifa said: “Despite our different cultures and languages, we share our belief that education is a right for everyone, that preserving heritage means securing the future, and that innovation and science are the bridge that will pull us out of this pandemic the world today is living.” She said that the Kingdom supported African countries and was ready to share its experiences in various UNESCO fields, in addition to supporting action plans related to developing islands as one of its priorities in exchanging experiences, especially since the Kingdom is one of the most advanced countries in the world in the field of water desalination. Reference was made to the Kingdom’s support for international growth and stability through the G20 presidency, specifically with regard to ensuring the continuity of education in crises, the continuation of efforts to achieve climate adaptation worldwide, and solidarity with the members of the G20 in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. As a member state of the UNESCO Executive Council, Saudi Arabia is at the 209th session to discuss international issues related to the fields of education, science and culture. These will be evaluated and decided upon, and the executive decisions assigned to them will be voted on, in cooperation with the council’s member states. The Kingdom’s participation in the meetings of the UNESCO Executive Council also comes as part of its permanent presence in the international cultural and educational organization since its foundation in 1946.
