Nearly two weeks after drone and missile attacks on its vital oil facilities, Saudi Arabia has said, it is enhancing cooperation with India to combat terrorism including choking funds to terror networks and exchange of information and intelligence.
In an interview to News Agency PTI, Saudi Ambassador Dr Saud bin Mohammed Al Sati said, India and Saudi Arabia are closely cooperating with each other in fighting terrorism. The envoy said, Saudi Arabia is leading the global campaign against terrorism, terror financing and extremism.
He said, his country is the founding member of a 68-nation strong Global Coalition to Counter ISIS and one of the founding countries of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Collation.
Saudi Arabia has been siding with India in its campaign to rid the region of terrorism and pledged to extend all cooperation to effectively deal with the challenge. In the last couple of years, both countries signed several agreements in the field of security, including an extradition treaty.
