KUWAIT city, June 3. /TASS/. In Saudi Arabia for the first time in the history of the country created a Ministry of culture. As reported by the Saudi press Agency (COAG), king Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud signed a decree on the abolition of the Ministry of culture and information and the formation of two independent agencies.
To lead the Ministry of culture, the monarch appointed a Saudi Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan al Saud — one of the companions of the crown Prince-reformer Mohammed bin Salman.
