Speaking on the issue of increasing terrorism, PM Modi asserted that India and Saudi Arabia have decided to join hands together in the fight against terrorism.

"The brutal attack in Pulwama that happened last week underlines the anti-humanitarian threat the world is facing today. To deal with it effectively, we agree that there is a need to put pressure on all countries supporting terrorism. It is important to destroy the infrastructure of terrorism and end its support system by giving strict punishment to the terrorists and their supporters. There is a need for cooperation against extremism and a strong action plan for it, the forces of violence and terror cannot mislead our youth. I am pleased that Saudi Arabia and India share the same views on this," PM Modi said.

The Saudi Crown Prince also assured to provide complete support to India on its fight against terrorism in Pakistan, by extending cooperation in sharing intelligence

"Extremism and terrorism are our common concerns. We would like to tell our friend India that we'll cooperate on all fronts, be it intelligence sharing. We'll work with everyone to ensure a brighter future for our upcoming generations," Saudi Crown Prince said.
