The Kings from Spain to their arrival to Aerial Base of Riad tomorrow, to 17, 00 (local time), will be received by king of Arabia and the Two Custodio of Sagradas Mezquitas - Mecca and Medina -, Abdullah Bin Abudalaziz Al-Saud, a gesture that demonstrates the special importance that the Kingdom gives this visit.
As of that same night and until Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía does not receive the Spanish colectivity, Sunday 10 of April in the morning, they will not appear together in acts witnessed by notary public, by special ' idiosincrasiá of the country, in agreement with official sources.
Saudi Arabia is the religious center of the Islamic faith, and although the certain thing is spoken of the reformist proposals of the present monarch, is that this country, in which the 95 percent of their ground is desert, is in that with more rigor the interpretation of the Corán is applied.
The night of her arrival, Doña Sofía will be received by the wife of the Arab king, princess Hassa, while Abdullah Bin Albulaziz Al-Saud will offer to Don Juan Carlos in full dress a supper in the Real Palace.
Sunday the King of Spain will approach until the Consultative Council and the Saudi Agency of International Investments. That same day Doña Sofía will know the ruins Al-Diariyadh, to little distance of the capital, and the National Museum, after visiting a Center of Humanitarian Services in the morning.

Queen Sofia will have in Arabia Saudi program of women, parallel to the one of King
(delegation of Ceoe that went to accompany to Kings to Riad cancels his visit after the saudíes authorities decided to limit the number of industralists)

Their Majestys the Kings will late initiate a this official trip from three days to Saudi Arabia, that is not only the main petroleum producer and exporter of the world, but that also is the country that more reserves it has, and even the guarantor, to a certain extent, of which the price of black gold does not raise too much in the international market, something that obtains precise increasing its production of barrels.
To their arrival to Riad, Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía His Majesty the King of Saudi Arabia and the Two will be received with all the honors on foot of airplane by Guard of Sagradas Mosques, Abdulá Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, that the past summer happened in the throne to King Fadh after its death. With both monarchs Don Juan Carlos he has always maintained a deep relation brotherly, on which the excellent relations of friendship and cooperation are laid the foundations that there is between both countries.
As of that moment, to the Kings they wait for parallel programs to them since, given to the customs and the idiosyncrasy of this Muslim country - governed by an Islamic monarchy wahabi -, in which the separation between men and women reigns in all the facets of the life, Doña Sofía will have her particular agenda. So particular, that not even he will attend the same supper in full dress that the King of Saudi Arabia will tonight offer to Don Juan Carlos in the Real Palace. To the same hour, Her Height Real Princess Hassa, wife of the King, will offer to Reina another supper. Doña Sofía will not go either to which will use tomorrow in the Palace of the Governor of Riad, Prince Salmán.
In fact, the official programs of Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía will not return to agree until the next Monday, when both offer a joint reception to the Spanish colony in the residence of the ambassador of Spain in Saudi Arabia, hours before they return to Madrid.

RIYADH (AFP) - King Juan Carlos of Spain and Queen Sofia began a three-day official visit to Saudi Arabia aimed at boosting economic ties between Madrid and the oil-rich Gulf kingdom.
They were greeted by King Abdullah and a host of dignitaries after landing at Riyadh Air Base.
The Saudi monarch was due to host a dinner banquet for the royal couple, on their fourth visit to Riyadh since 1977, before holding talks with Juan Carlos late Saturday, officials said.
The Spanish king, heading a delegation including ministers and business chiefs, met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal after his arrival, state media reported.
Officials said he would visit the Saudi appointed Shura (consultative) Council on Sunday before overseeing the signing of a bilateral investment agreement at the headquarters of SAGIA, the authority charged with promoting investments in Saudi Arabia.
Juan Carlos will also receive a number of ministers at his place of residence, including Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz and Oil Minister Ali al-Nuaimi, in addition to the head of state-run oil giant Saudi Aramco and Saudi businessmen.
The visit will "give a boost" to Spanish enterprises seeking to enter the Saudi market and improve relations which are "not very significant at the economic level," a Spanish diplomatic source said in Madrid earlier this week.
Saudi oil imports meet some six percent of Spanish needs, with Riyadh ranking sixth among Madrid's energy suppliers.
Spain's Repsol was among a group of international companies which signed gas exploration and production contracts with Saudi Arabia in March 2004.

I hope we get to see many pictures of the activities and events that Queen Sofia attends during this trip. It would be very interesting to see pictures of the dinner offered to Her by Princess Hassa.

The King emphasizes in Saudi Arabia that it is the moment to reinforce economic relations

RIAD. - The King of Spain has declared in Riad, in his second day of official stay in Saudi Arabia, that this one is the "propitious moment" to reinforce the narrow bilateral bonds with "intense" economic relations. That is the intention of the stay of the Kings in Saudi Arabia, in his room it travels official to first world-wide oil power and one of the most prosperous economies of the planet. Juan Carlos I animated in that direction before authorities and saudíes investors when concluding its visit to the seat of the powerful Saudi Agency of International Inversiones (SAGIA), whose president, Amr Ibn Abdulá to the Dabagh, proposed the creation of a bilateral investment fund of 5,000 million dollars.
