Saudi Arabia shared important intelligence and information with the Indian government soon after the terror attack on the Pathankot airbase started, The Times of India reported. 

According to the report, hours after the attacks began, India asked Riyadh for assistance and cooperation. 

Saudi Arabia has however not officially commented on the attack.

The TOI report further states, "The India-Saudi security cooperation has only improved in the past years. As recently as a few weeks ago, Saudi Arabia sent to India what sources say was an important terror suspect who was plotting a big attack against India. Since the repatriation of Abu Jindal, sources say India and Saudi Arabia have worked together on a number of instances." 

PM Modi is expected to visit Saudi Arabia sometime later this year. 

It reportedly took nearly 80 hours for the operation in Pathankot to end, and the government was also criticised for the way it handled the attack.
