PM Narendra Modi returns to New Delhi after three-nation tour

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned to New Delhi on Monday morning after successfully wrapping up his three-nation tour of Belgium, the US and Saudi Arabia.

"Thank you Saudi Arabia. Joined several programmes during my visit, which will deepen economic & people-to-people ties between our nations," Modi tweeted both in Arabic and English before departing for New Delhi.

He was recieved by Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, including Satish Upadhyay and Vijender Gupta upon his arrival at the Palam Airport in Delhi.

The Prime Minister's first stop was Brussels where he attended the long-delayed India-EU summit and held talks with Belgium counterpart Charles Michel on March 30, following which he left for the US to attend the fourth Nuclear Security Seminar (NSS) in Washington.

The Prime Minister arrived in Riyadh on Saturday, where he held wide-ranging talks with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, during which they agreed to strengthen cooperation in combating terrorism.

During their meeting, the two leaders signed a number of agreements and called on the international community "to strengthen multilateral regimes to effectively address the challenges posed by terrorism."
