The Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, Farhan Al-Saud has said that the relationship between India and Saudi Arabia has grown exponentially, and there is a need for measurable progress in all sectors, especially the economic and trade relationship.
Highlighting the strong relationship between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi FM said that both leaders want to see actual results and progress in relationship between the two nations. Al-Saud said this relationship has grown exponentially in the last five years. “India is a fantastically dynamic country with huge potential, and we have seen that especially in the last five years, the trajectory for India is fantastic. The potential that India holds is almost unmeasurable.”
In an interview in Delhi, the visiting minister acknowledged the fact that India has played an important role in the developmental journey of the Kingdom for several decades given the large Indian presence in the country. He also said that India’s huge size offers great potential as a huge amount of India’s trade to Europe passes through the Red Sea. “We are of course India’s most important energy partner as that’s the case for traditional energies, but we are also looking to continue that into the renewable era,” he added.
