(MENAFN - Arab News) Former US Secretary of State James Baker has called the "Saudi Archaeological Masterpieces Through the Ages" exhibition "marvelous, reflecting the rich history of the Kingdom," the Saudi Press Agency said.

Baker's remarks came during his visit to the exhibition, which was launched by Prince Sultan bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA), on Dec. 18 in Houston, Texas.

He appreciated the historic relations between the two countries, which have steadily progressed since the historic meeting between the late King Abdulaziz and former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Baker said the show will undoubtedly boost relations between the two countries.

Baker stressed the importance of cultural exchange between nations to build confidence and foster peace.

"The United States and Saudi Arabia have a long history of outstanding relations, which makes the show extremely important and impressive, he said.

The exhibition focuses on the influence of ancient trade routes that crossed the Arabian Peninsula and allowed for trade and cultural exchange between different civilizations.

It also features a range of recently discovered relics from ancient trade routes, in addition to highlighting the subsequent developments of Haj routes to Makkah after the emergence of Islam.
