New Delhi: Saudi Arabia`s Ambassador to
India Saud bin Mohammed Al-Saty on Wednesday met External Affairs
Minister SM Krishna and is understood to have discussed
bilateral issues.

Al-Saty met Krishna at his residence here and the meeting
was on for 30 minutes.

Though officials described it as a "routine" meeting, it
assumes significance in the wake of Saudi Arabia`s offer for
assistance, including additional supply of crude oil if India
needs it.

The offer came in the wake of Western sanctions against
Iran. India imports oil from Iran, which is its second largest
supplier.
