Saudi Arabia vows to back India in fight against terrorism
New Delhi : Saudi Arabia on Wednesday agreed to back India in fight against terrorism, also blacklist Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) Chief Masood Azhar. The decision comes a day after France decided to move a resolution against JeM chief Masood Azhar at the United Nations to list him as 'global terrorist'.
“Terrorism and extremism is a common concern. We want to tell India that we will cooperate with them on intelligence sharing…not just with India but with our neighbours as well. We thank India for the positive role in this,” Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman said on Wednesday during his visit to India.
After concluding his Pakistan tour, Mohammad Bin Salman arrived in India on a two-day visit. Minister of External Affairs (MEA) said that as of now, Saudi Arabia has not offered to mediate between India and Pakistan at this point in time.
It added that, “The two leaders (PM Modi and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman) condemned in the strongest terms the recent terrorist attack on Indian forces in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.”
