Saudi Arabia's archaeological treasure of Al-Ula to open to tourists

Description

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is in France this week. He is meeting President Emmanuel Macron to discuss, among other things, tourism in the kingdom. Currently the country is closed to foreign visitors, apart from pilgrims. The crown prince wants to open things up and is looking at developing the historic site of Al-Ula, in the north of Saudi Arabia - with the help of France. Our regional correspondents report from this archeological treasure in the desert.

FRANCE 24 brings you a documentary series on four borders that are emblematic of our times. This is the case between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, two countries that had ceased diplomatic relations after Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait. Our reporter Lucile Wassermann travelled to the Arar border crossing, which is coming back to life in the middle of the desert.
