NEW DELHI — Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said terrorism was a common concern with India and that his country was ready to share intelligence to tackle it.
The crown prince, who was speaking at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Wednesday, said Saudi Arabia was ready for political cooperation with India.
“On the issue of extremism and terrorism, which is a common concern, we want to tell India that we will cooperate in every way, including intelligence sharing,” the crown prince said.
The crown prince’s visit comes days after a militant attack in Kashmir which involved a bombing of a security convoy in which 40 Indian paramilitary police were killed. The attack was claimed by Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
