Saudi Arabia crown prince to visit India next week


Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is set to hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with defence, trade and energy security set to be high on the agenda.

Beginning February 19, it will be Prince Salman's first state visit to India. 

He will be accompanied by a high-level delegation including ministers, senior officials and leading Saudi businessmen. 

This follows Modi's trip to Saudi Arabia in April 2016, during which the two sides agreed to further elevate existing strategic partnership.

Prince Mohammed will visit Pakistan over the weekend, where he is expected to ink agreements, mainly linked to a refinery and the power sector.

He is also expected to visit China, Malaysia and Indonesia during a tour.
