As conflict escalates in Gaza and disruptions affect maritime traffic in the Red Sea, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MbS), held a phone conversation to address the situation. The leaders expressed their commitment to work together for peace, security, and stability in the West Asia region.

In a post on social media, Modi stated, “Held a good conversation with my Brother HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman… We exchanged views on the West Asia situation and shared concerns regarding terrorism, violence, and the loss of civilian lives. Agreed to work together for peace, security, and stability in the region.”

The leaders emphasized the importance of maintaining maritime security and the freedom of navigation. They reviewed the progress in their bilateral Strategic Partnership and discussed future collaboration. Modi conveyed greetings to Saudi Arabia on hosting Expo 2030 and the FIFA Football World Cup 2034.

Last week, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu briefed Modi on the Israel-Hamas conflict. Recent incidents, including a drone attack on the merchant vessel MV Chem Pluto and an attack on a crude oil tanker in the Red Sea, prompted joint efforts by the Indian Navy and Coast Guard to counter piracy and drone threats.

As Houthi militants in Yemen targeted vessels in the Red Sea, India expressed support for the free movement of commercial shipping. The conflict has led to rerouting some ships navigating this crucial trade route.

The leaders agreed to stay in touch, underscoring the importance of collaboration amid regional challenges. The phone conversation reflects a collective effort to address security concerns and promote stability in the region.
