Saudi King’s historic visit to Moscow: Middle East conflicts, trade
King Salman of Saudi Arabia arrived in Moscow on Wednesday; the first such visit by a reigning Saudi monarch, RT news reported. 

He will meet Russian president Putin to discuss trade, economy, investment, and conflicts in North Africa and the Middle East.

King Salman is scheduled to meet with Putin on Thursday.

“The leaders will consider joint steps to further develop bilateral cooperation in the trade, economic, investment and cultural-humanitarian areas,” the Kremlin’s press service said, commenting on the visit.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss defense industry cooperation, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

He said Moscow and Riyadh have “broad prospects” for cooperation as the potential of bilateral relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia is “far from being fully unlocked.”

On Friday, the Saudi King will meet with the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to discuss some economic issues, including major infrastructure projects.
