The EU cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved Post Facto the agreement signed by the Prime Minister for the creation of the Strategic Partnership Council between India and Saudi Arabia. The agreement was signed on October 29, 2019 during a two-day visit to the Gulf Kingdom by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Prime Minister Modi held bilateral talks with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and signed the agreement on the Strategic Partnership Council. He met King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for lunch. Mr Modi`s visit is important because it comes three months after India ended kashmir`s special status. However, former Ambassador to Riyadh Talmiz Ahmed believes Kashmir is unlikely to attract the attention of Saudi leaders, as the visit is expected to strengthen the global stature of the crown prince, who suffered after the brutal assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. „This visit is a vote of confidence in the leadership of Crown Prince bin Salman and will be used to show that relations between Saudi India are determined by long-term strategic considerations such as India`s energy security and our desire to ensure stability in the Gulf region,“ Ahmad said. The agreement will allow leaders at the highest level, both in India and Saudi Arabia, to meet regularly and monitor progress in ongoing initiatives/projects as part of a strategic partnership.
