NEW DELHI: India and Saudi Arabia have agreed to take "irreversible, verifiable and credible" steps against all terrorists without any discrimination, in an apparent message to Pakistan, which has been linked by New Delhi with last month's Pulwama terror attack. The development came during the visit of Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al Jubeir here, as a follow up of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's India visit last month. 
 
Al Jubeir met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in his over four-hour working visit. He conveyed the greetings of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the Crown Prince to Prime Minister Modi. 
 
Modi thanked the Saudi Arabian leadership for expressing solidarity with India's fight against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. 
 
The Saudi minister also briefed the Prime Minister on the follow up of the outcomes of the historical visit of the Crown Prince last month.  Both the countries have taken significant steps to boost trade and investment and to achieve $100 billion investment from Saudi Arabia into India, which was announced during the visit of the Crown Prince Mohammed.
