Ahmed al-Khatib, the chairman of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority (GEA), clarified his interview with Reuters regarding entertainment in the Saudi kingdom and said some of his statements were misunderstood after they were translated into Arabic.
Khatib clarified his statement to Reuters that cinemas would come to Saudi Arabia eventually and said this will happen as per official measures that the kingdom adopts when dealing with developmental projects.
“These measures take all demands, particularly the desires of the society which will benefit from these projects, into consideration,” Khatib said.
Regarding his statement that entertainment “will be like 99 percent of what is going on in London and New York,” Khatib said this does not necessarily mean that entertainment will contradict with the desire of the people who stand to benefit.
