The powerful prince returned to Riyadh on Monday as India objected to his direct arrival from Pakistan, according to Indian press reports. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman concluded his visit to Pakistan on Monday and will not arrive in India until Tuesday night. New Delhi “had reservations over his (MbS) coming to India from Pakistan,” confirmed India’s top news agency, quoting sources familiar with the matter.

India conveyed to the Saudi authorities that a visit to New Delhi by the young royal “immediately following a stop in Islamabad would not be acceptable”, reported Mint.

The report comes amid tensions between India and Pakistan triggered by a bloody attack on Indian paramilitaries in disputed Muslim-majority Kashmir last week, the most serious in the Himalayan region’s history.

The attack has sparked widespread calls in India for action against Pakistan. Saudi Arabia vowed to help “de-escalate” the tensions. “Our objective is to try to de-escalate tensions between the two countries, neighbouring countries, and to see if there is a path forward to resolving those differences peacefully,” Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs Adel al-Jubeir told a press conference in Islamabad on Monday.
