Indo-Saudi Agreements Announced


Information and Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Munshi stated announced that the Indian and Saudi Governments are signing a bilateral agreement on investment and protection. The Saudi Arabian King Abdullah will be the Chief Guest at the India Republic Day Parade this year. India has many contentious issues with Saudi Arabia including the sanctuary that country provides to terrorists who operate in India. The recent terrorist incident at the Indian Institute of Science was conceptualized and financed by a Saudi citizen. Rich old Saudi men also visit India to "marry" poor Indian Muslim girls only to abandon them shortly after their marriage. Some have even been arrested for trafficking under age girls and boys for work as sex slaves or for camel racing. A sizeable Indian expatriate community lives in and every year large Haj pilgrims visit Saudi Arabia.
