Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who landed in India on Tuesday night on a two-day visit was welcomed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with other dignitaries at the airport.
Following his arrival, a video has been making rounds on social media in which it can be seen that the Saudi crown prince decided to ditch Indian PM Modi and go in his own car. MBS, who was welcomed amid tight security can be seen driving away in his car and did not sit in the car with PM Modi, who was seen waving goodbye to the Saudi royal.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit is expected to focus on deepening the strategic partnership between the two countries and deliver a strong message on terrorism. The crown prince reached the national capital shortly before 9 pm to a red carpet welcome, HindustanTimes reported.
Moreover, Indian President Ram Nath Kovind accorded ceremonial welcome to MBS at the Rashtrapati Bhawan (President House) in New Delhi on Wednesday ahead of his scheduled bilateral talks with PM Modi.
