According to a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs on Sunday, the Saudi Foreign Minister will be arriving in New Delhi on Tuesday evening following which he is slated to call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In the evening, the Saudi Foreign Minister will meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Bhawan in the national capital.
