RIYADH: US President Donald Trump is visiting Saudi Arabia to attend world Islamic conference in Riyadh.
Trump will be accompanied by wife Melania Trump, daughter Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said on Thursday America’s first lady Melania and Ivanka Trump won’t be required to wear a headscarf in Saudi Arabia.
Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner both practicing Orthodox Jews. They had to receive a rabbinical dispensation to travel on Friday, the Jewish Sabbath, a White House official said.
Saudi Foreign Minister said, “We welcome any style (of Melania and Ivanka) in clothing.”
Female dignitaries particularly from Western countries have recently opted out of Saudi Arabia strict dress code, and they sometimes do so to make a statement, according to Yahoo! Style.
