The Kingdom would soon have a media city providing technical and other facilities for local and international journalists operating in the country.

The media houses would be given “flexibility” to operate, within the rules and regulations of the country, said Adel Al-Turaifi, minister of culture and information, according to a report by an online publication on Monday. The minister said this was part of the country’s plan to strengthen its presence in media abroad. “We have lagged behind… We are trying to deal with it skilfully.”

On social media, Al-Turaifi said these were not part of institutionalized media operating here and abroad, but helped to communicate religious and national issues to the public. However, they also have to obey the country’s rules and regulations, he said.
