Wawrinka and Medvedev lured to Saudi Arabia's US$3m exhibition tournament

Wawrinka and Medvedev lured to Saudi Arabia's US$3m exhibition tournament”

Saudi Arabia will host its first-ever worldwide tennis tournament later this year, offering a prize fund of US$3 million.

In an interview with the group leader, RM shared "I wouldn't say it was easy", - whose real name is Kim Nam-Joon. "It's been a while since we've performed in the Middle East".

"The ministry of foreign affairs is always ready to cooperate with our neighbours for the security of the region and we have announced this position officially". The Middle East is the world's second largest and fastest growing arms market and already accounts for around half of Russia's arms exports.

Speaking to the news site, managing director and founding partner at Glowork Khalid Al-Saleh, said, "We started it (the recruitment fair) seven years ago and organize it annually under the patronage of the Labor Ministry". Over the last few months, scores of celebrities including Mariah Carey, Enrique Iglesias, the Black Eyed Peas and Sean Paul, as well as DJs David Guetta and Tiesto performed in the Middle East.

Tensions have been brewing between Tehran and Riyadh since the Saudi oil facilities were struck by missiles last month.

However, Saudi Arabia maintains a strong hold on opposition and dissident voices by imprisoning them, and rights groups have criticised the social reforms as cosmetic changes.

This came in the Kingdom's speech during the Third Committee meeting to discuss the advancement of women (26), within the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly, which was delivered on Monday by member of the Saudi permanent delegation to the United Nations, First Secretary Noura bint Abdulaziz Al-Jibreen. In 2018, 139 people were executed, including 54 convicted of non-violent crimes. Same-sex relationships are illegal, and unmarried couples face arrest.
