Next stop on Saudi crown prince's image makeover tour: China

Punish those found guilty of perpetrating terror says Saudi foreign minister

Punish those found guilty of perpetrating terror says Saudi foreign minister

The former gains from mostly unbridled military and political support from Islamabad and Rawalpindi, while the latter gains from financial infusions into its economy emboldened by the common theological bridge between the two states. 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 will work together so that we can ensure a bright future for the generations to come". "Both sides agreed on the need for creation of conditions necessary for resumption of the comprehensive dialogue", the MEA further said.

The crown prince made the decision on a request from Modi.

Answering a query, he said the complicity of Pakistan in Pulwama attack was very much underlined during the talks.

Significantly, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir clarified in an interview to news agency PTI that his country will not involve itself "intensions between India and Pakistan without being invited by both the countries".

Aramco signed an accord in April a year ago with Indian investors on a $44-billion petrochemical project in western India.

Saudi Aramco plans to sign preliminary deals to invest in two oil refining and petrochemical complexes in China during Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's state visit to Beijing this week, according to sources familiar with the plans. "We plan to diversify our investments in petrochemicals and other sectors", he said. "PM Modi has shown the country, the martyrs and every soldier in India what he thinks of their service and sacrifice", the party said on Twitter.

He says Carlson is "a millionaire funded by billionaires" and "not part of the solution" but "part of the problem, actually". It says, "I loved what you said at Davos, so I had high hopes for our interview.

The Saudi Prince arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday evening on a two-day visit, which followed his Pakistan tour.

Saudi state-owned Saudi Aramco remains positive on its investments in India and will be able to catch up on the deadline for commissioning the $40 billion greenfield refinery earlier planned at Ratnagiri in Maharashtra despite the shift in location, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Amin H Nasser said.

"We are looking at additional investment in India so we are in discussions with other companies as well, including Reliance and others", Nasser said in a panel discussion in New Delhi.

Prince Mohammed and Mr Modi walk in the grounds of Hyderabad House.

The reactions to MBS's visit here were expectedly mixed, with many analysts and the media alike looking for direct condemnation of Pakistan from Saudi Arabia while pointing out the irony of the Indian prime minister standing next to the incoming Saudi chieftain, a country often carrying the majority of the blame for financing groups across the region and beyond that engage in terror activities on a daily basis.

Modi welcomed the announcement by Prince Mohammed to invest in the areas of energy, refining, petrochemicals, infrastructure, agriculture, minerals and mining, manufacturing, education and health potentially worth in excess of $100 billion.
