According to sources, Saudi Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) cancelled a planned visit to Delhi on Sunday due to “scheduling issues” on both sides. While the visit has not been officially announced, it has been in the works for several weeks after External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar delivered a letter from Prime Minister Narendra Modi inviting the Saudi Prince in September.

According to officials who confirmed the cancellation, both Mr. Salman and Mr. Modi are expected to meet in Bali for the G-20 summit beginning Monday, and the Saudi Prince will return to Delhi soon.

Mr. Salman was scheduled to visit Delhi for a half-day visit to discuss a variety of issues, including energy cooperation, oil trade, and investment in renewable energy projects in India, as well as other areas of infrastructure investment by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to officials involved in the planning.
