Saudi Arabia and Japan have signed an agreement to conduct further archeological excavations at Al-Hawra in Tabuk’s Umluj governorate.
The pact was inked Sunday by Dr. Jasser Al-Harbash, CEO of the Heritage Commission in the Kingdom, and Dr. So Hasegawa, professor at Japan’s Waseda University.
Japan’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia IWAI Fumio was present at the signing ceremony.
The team has already uncovered items of historical and cultural significance at the site, which is believed to have played an important role in trade from the coast.
