    Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud apprises PM Narendra Modi on counter-terrorism coalition

    RIYADH: King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud apprised Prime Minister Narendra Modi about Saudi Arabia's initiative in bringing together 34 Muslim countries to form a powerful Islamic military coalition to combat the scourge of terrorism as the two leaders resolved to enhance counter- terror cooperation.

    In the talks yesterday at the at the Al-Yamamah Palace here yesterday, the King also appreciated India's interest in the Gulf as well as its keenness in supporting its stability of the countries in the region.

    The King briefed the Prime Minister about Saudi Arabia's initiative to form a coalition to contain terrorism, Saudi officials said.

    Oil-rich Saudi Arabia, a country known as spiritual home of Islam, has recently formed a major coalition of 34 Muslim nations to fight terror, particularly the ISIS.

    The formation of the coalition comes amid criticism that Arab countries are not doing enough to contain rise of ISIS in the region.

    The coalition includes nations with large and established armies such as Pakistan, Turkey and Egypt as well as war-torn countries with embattled militaries such as Libya and Yemen.

    Other members are Saudi Arabia's five partners in the Gulf Cooperation Council, as well as Jordan, Nigeria, Egypt, Chad, Mali,Malaysia, Morocco, Senegal, Somalia and Tunisia.

    Saudi Arabia's regional rival, Iran, is not part of the coalition. Iraq and Syria whose forces are battling the Islamic State terror group are also not in the coalition.

    India and Saudi Arabia, a major ally of Pakistan, also decided to ramp up their counter-terrorism cooperation and asked all states to dismantle terror infrastructures where they exist while rejecting use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy.

    The strong views by Saudi Arabia, known as spiritual home of Islam and one of the most influential country in the Gulf region, is seen as an unprecedented political endorsement of New Delhi's concerns about terrorism, extremism and radicalisation.

    The two countries also signed an agreement in sharing intelligence related to money laundering and terror financing.

    "We also stress the importance of continued cooperation and coordination with the government of your country in the field of counter-terrorism," the Saudi Foreign Ministry quoted the King as saying.

    He further said, "We are confident that our discussions will enhance our relationship and cooperation in various fields in order to achieve the strategic partnership between our two countries to serve the common interests."

    Besides extensive deliberations on combating terrorism, the talks focused on ways to expand strategic cooperation in a range of areas such as trade and investment, particularly in the oil sector.

    Reflecting growing congruence in ties, the two sides also decided to ramp up defence cooperation including in maritime sphere and agreed to expand engagement in energy and infrastructure sector.

    In the talks, the two leaders also rejected totally any attempt to link terrorism to any particular race, religion or culture as they agreed to promote cooperation in cyber security, including prevention of use of cyber space for terrorism and radicalisation.

    Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's media covered Modi's visit extensively.

    Its national daily Arab News had published a six-paged supplement on April 2, the day Modi arrived here, featuring articles relating to India-Saudi ties in diverse fields.

    "King-Modi talks boost strategic partnership," said its headline on the front page about talks between the two leaders.

    The Pakis must be pulling their hair out in frustration as India has pulled the rug from under their feet! Pak is no more a major player in the Middle East now. It's India all the way!

    Don't celebrate so early, cannot trust KSA with anything, this is just a balancing game of KSA so as to prevent India from leaning too much towards Iran.

    Pakistan was never a competitor of India, neither in the region, nor beyond. Pakistan is a Pig which is jumping high on Made-in-China steroids.

    We need to take active steps to destroy the CPEC and to realize a Free Balochistan. Time has come for Modi to prove that he is not merely a Jumlaman.

    Modi visited Saudia is a good thing.
    I hope muslims and hindus must be united against terrorism. I hope Pakistan and India must be united against terrorism, western hegemony, and other evils.
    Pakistan have no issue against this visit infact we have excellent relations with Saudis. Modi visit to Saudia help to make better relations between Pakistan and India.

    Bro you cannot achieve by bashing Pakistan.
    You are not understanding some realities which you need to accept.
    CPEC is now becoming China's concern too including Pakistan so by threatening it will only hurt india and only common hindus will suffer which i dont want to. Balochistan leberation is a dream and if you try to pursue it by terror or through other bad policy then it will harm your relation with Iran. Iran and Pakistan have a secret pact in the case of Baluchistan and if you try it then india will lost chah bahar from Iran. Iran might consider China for development.
    You have limited choice and accept it.

    This is South Asia, India's backyard, we will make CPEC China's concern and clap while China's investments drain into gutter. Our way of telling China: Don't mess with us in our backyard.

    Modi is exercising a very offensive diplomacy to isolate China and pakistan. His aggressive diplomacy has left Pakistan with no friend except china. Modi has demolished chiese string of pearl strategy. China is very very frustrated and do not know how to respond to Modi's diplomatic offensive and Pakistan is almost a big zero in international relation. I foresee even worse time ahead for Pakistan. Pakistanis are getting happy by killing couple of Indian civilian and on the other hand modi is exercising a diplomacy to cut pakistan according to its size. I listen to a discussion on Pakistan TV (Youtube) in which panelist were discussing that Size of Pakistan economy shall be 49th compared to India by 2050. They said that what shall be the status of Pakistan against 49 time big economy, the india?

    I really don't see how befriending SaudiA is a good thing. Yeah they're rich as hell, and they've got the Americans in their pockets - but it is their citizens along with many of Turkey's and Qatar's that fund ISIS. Saudis want to fight and resist Iran and the Shias, are funding anti-Assad resistance in Syria through terrorist rebel factions. They are by far the greatest aggressionists in Mid-East today.Look at what they're doing in Yemen.

    We should be stepping away from such alliances. If we're doing it just to smite or isolate Pakistan, I don't know what to say. Pakistan gets hurt more due to Saudi Arabia's Wahhabist extremist culture than India. We do not want Saudi's ideological teachings coming to Shia Muslim majority of India. That will be VERY dangerous as it will lead to rise of Jihadist mentality.
