Riyadh — Saudi Arabia’s Presidency of State Security will be working with India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to combat terrorist crimes and its financing, as the Kingdom’s Cabinet of Ministers chaired by King Salman Al-Saud, approved the cooperation agreement between the two entities.

According to Saudi Gazette, the Saudi Cabinet “approved the cooperation agreement between the Presidency of State Security in the Kingdom and the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in India for combating terrorist crimes and its financing”.
