Saudi king dismissed Minister of oil


According to the decree of Saudi king Salman, Ali al-Nuaimi, who held the post of oil Minister of Saudi Arabia since 1995, will leave his post, according to Reuters. The post al-Nuaimi is Khalid al falih, the same decree released from the post of Minister of health.

Another Royal decree, also published on may 7, suggests that now the Ministry of oil will be replaced by a new Ministry — the Ministry of energy, industry and mining, which will lead to al-falih.

In addition, the king has replaced a number of Ministers in his government and created a new Ministry — the Ministry of culture.
