Modi leaves for New Delhi

Riyadh, April 3 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi left here for New Delhi on Sunday evening at the conclusion of his two-day bilateral visit to Saudi Arabia.

During delegation-level talks earlier on Sunday, India and Saudi Arabia agreed to strengthen cooperation in the fight against terrorism and boost bilateral trade.

During his stay here, Modi also interacted with members of the three million-strong expatriate Indian community, including blue collar workers involved in the Gulf kingdom’s infrastructure sector.

Saudi Arabia was the third and last leg of Modi’s five-day foreign tour which also took him to Brussels and Washington, D.C.

In Brussels, he attended the 13th India-European Union (EU) Summit and held a bilateral meeting with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel. In Washington, he participated in the Nuclear Security Summit hosted by US President Barack Obama.

This was the first prime ministerial visit from India to the oil-rich Gulf kingdom since the visit of Manmohan Singh in 2010.
