Saudi Arabia's foreign minister arrives in India

The Indian ambassador to the kingdom, Ausaf Sayeed, receive Prince Faisal bin Farhan on his arrival

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan on Saturday arrived in New Delhi on a two-day visit.

Prince Faisal will meet the Minister of External Affairs, Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, on Sunday at Hyderabad House in Delhi.

The Indian ambassador to the kingdom, Ausaf Sayeed, received Prince Faisal on his arrival in the Indian capital.

The ambassador and Indian External Affairs Ministry tweeted a photo of Dr Sayeed with the Saudi foreign minister on Saturday evening.

In August, Saudi Arabia scrapped the quarantine rule for Indian residents who received both doses of Covid-19 vaccines in the kingdom and allowed them to fly back into the country even though flights from India were still banned for non-residents.

Dr Jaishankar held bilateral talks with Saudi Arabia's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel Al Jubeir, in August.
