Saudi Arabia Enters the Entertainment World with $2.7-B Investment

Saudi Arabia Enters the Entertainment World with $2.7-B Investment”

But a call he arranged between the leaders of Qatar and Saudi Arabia didn't bear fruit and led to disparate statements from the two nations. Yet, some other U.S. officials, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, adopted a more measured tone.

The general entertainment authority has lined up some large-scale displays to light up Saudi Arabia's horizon with the likes of high technology laser shows and vibrant firework displays on offer. A Bloomberg reporter who requested comment was directed to those past statements.

Regional kingpin Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of backing extremism and fostering ties with their rival Iran.

Al Thani replied: 'As you said, Mr. President, we have a problem with our neighbors, and your interference will help a lot.

Trump took a similar tone Tuesday. The U.S. maintains thousands of troops at a military base in Qatar, along with significant business interests in the oil and natural gas sector of the country.

Mediation efforts have been spearheaded by both Kuwait and the USA but have thus far failed to deliver tangible results.

Trump earlier this month was optimistic he could force a breakthrough.

For U.S. policymakers, one of the most concerning aspects of this conflict is how it will impact the future of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), a regional alliance viewed by many in Washington as an important counter to Iranian influence in the Middle East. 'And now we want to make the most of it by getting things settled. Qatar is the world's richest country per capita and the biggest supplier of liquefied natural gas.

Saudi Arabia seeks to increase domestic spending on entertainment and launch hundreds of recreation centers across the kingdom as part of its Vision 2030. The Saudis have also backed rebels in Syria's civil war, and led a ground and air campaign aimed at subduing Iranian-linked fighters in neighboring Yemen.
