Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud's visit to Russia to meet with the Russian President Vladimir Putin comes in a very critical time, according to experts.
This visit comes after the conclusion of US President Donald Trump's summits with Saudi Arabia, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Islamic countries which discussed Iran's threats against the region and means to vanquish it.
Salman discussed critical issues with Putin, among them Russia's involvement in Syria after the international community reached a consensus on the necessity of ousting Syrian regime president Bashar al Assad from Syria as a main solution to end the bloody civil war in the country.
They also discussed Iran in their meeting, as it sponsors terrorism and sectarian militias in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon.
The two leaders also discussed Russia's controversial alliance with Iran and Syria, especially after the world has united against the bloody dictator Assad in Syria and Iran's Spreme Leader Khamenei who spread terrorism around the globe.
Will Russia change its allies?
The most important part of this visit will is disucssing the Russian-Saudi relation and means to strengthen it.
Salman had talked with Putin about the benefits Russia will endure if it halted support to Syria and Iran and the true gains of an alliance with Saudi Arabia, GCC, Muslim countries who are now stronger, united more than ever after the recent summits.
Salman's message to Putin is to cut his losses in Syria and the necessity to give up on Khamenei and his sectarian militias in Syria.
The deputy crown prince also called on Putin to lift his support to the criminal Syrian regime and to urge Assad to step down.
Many experts said that Putin would change his stance on these key issues after Salman shows him the conclusions of Riyadh's summit.

The meeting also comes after a meeting between Putin and the new French President Emanuel Macron who warned that France would response to any use of chemical weapons in Syria and has urged the Russian President to fight ISIS in Syria, the Guardian reported Tuesday.
“A very clear red line exists on our side, that is the use of chemical weapons by whomever,” Macron said at a joint news conference with the Russian President.
Macron said France would show “no weakness” if chemical weapons were used, and would immediately respond.
This comes after French spies publicly released evidence last month that indicated the Assad regime had used toxic sarin gas on the town of Khan Sheikhun, an attack that provoked the US to launch missiles on a Syrian air base in its first targeted attack against the Syrian president’s forces.
