RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- The Saudi English-language daily The Saudi Gazette has signed a general cooperation agreement with the pan-Arab network al-Arabiya, officials said.

"We are pleased to cooperate as we believe al-Arabiya's professional editorial services will add value and a new dimension to our newspaper's journalistic offerings," al-Arabiya Sunday quoted Khaled al-Maeena, editor in chief of the daily newspaper, as saying.

"The idea is derived from the conviction that quality content is able to take any shape or form; indeed, a video report can appear on television, be posted on our website, shared on social media or transcribed and republished in print format in a quality daily newspaper such as the Saudi Gazette," al-Arabia Editor Faisal J. Abbas said.

Online readers in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East will be able to access either of the sites to read the daily news, al-Arabiya said.
