India protests over Saudi Arabia’s ‘distortion of map’ on currency note by removing JK, Ladakh

New Delhi: Stating that Saudi Arabia has distorted the Indian boundaries, India on Thursday lodged a protest with Saudi Arabia as it removed Jammu and Kashmir from India and Pakistan’s map and shows it as a separate territory in a global map printed behind the new 20 Riyal currency note.

The new currency note was released by Saudi Arabia to commemorate the kingdom’s presidency of the Group of Twenty (G20) international forum.

The new note features King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and the 2020 G20 Summit logo on one side. A world map highlighting G20 nations in a darker shade on the other is shown on the rear side.
