The army chief of Saudi Arabia visited India this week. His three-day visit is being described as historic as it was the first visit of a Saudi army chief to India.

Just three years ago, when Saudi Arabia’s ‘Crown Prince’ Muhammad bin Salman came on his first visit to India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, bypassing protocol, himself went to the airport and welcomed him with a warm embrace.

This visit of Mohammed bin Salman was not just a formality, but many messages were going through it in strategic and diplomatic circles. Mohammed bin Salman is also the Defense Minister of Saudi Arabia.

And, then after a few months, that is, in the month of October 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also visited Saudi Arabia.
