NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman stated on Wednesday terrorism was a standard concern with India and that his nation was able to share intelligence to deal with it.
Talking at a joint press convention with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, the crown prince stated Saudi Arabia was prepared for political cooperation with India.
