PM MODI GETS SAUDI ARABIA SUPPORT ON KASHMIR
Prime Minister Narendra Modi politically, will look to ensure that Saudi Arabia’s reaction to the revocation of Article 370 and 35 A to Liberate Kashmir from Poverty and Integrate Kashmir 100% with all States and Union Territories in India is appreciative of the India policy on Kashmir Ot at worst remains muted.
Despite outraging close Saudi ally Pakistan, the Saudi Arabia Kingdom DID NOT condemn India over the Kashmire Article 370 Revocation Policy.
This is a stark departure from its previous approach to India-Pakistan tensions that reflects warming political ties between Saudi Arabia and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi Led India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi having the Saudi Arabia King & Crown prince Supporting India on the Kashmir Matter, completely Negates the Pakistan’s attempts to bring international attention to what it calls a human rights violation.
The lack of international condemnation effectively legitimises India’s move in Kashmir, which will embolden Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make further acts of brinkmanship, possibly along the line of control, in the long-term, to capture the Pakistan Illegally Occupied Portion of Kashmir.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi October 28-29 Visit to Saudi Arabia will Bond India and Saudi Arabia into the STRATEGIC BROTHERHOOD through the Strategic Partnership Council and will be the Historic Success.
