Putin accepts invitation to visit Saudi Arabia

Putin accepts invitation to visit Saudi Arabia

These 10 major agreements, would map the future of relations between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

King Salman is expected to ask Russia's support and commitment to ensure that the production cuts deal continues, following Saudi Arabia's cut of its output to around 10 million barrels per day to help control a glut in world oil supplies.

But oil was front and center.

He also stressed that cooperation between the two countries is not limited to the OPEC+ agreement.

Falih said oil demand was healthy around the world, and there was a steady reduction in global oil inventories. "I´m discussing." Venezuela´s oil minister, Eulogio del Pino, also said there were discussions on whether to cut further or extend the deal.

Putin said it wasn't his place to dictate US policy, but also noted Russian Federation shares a border with North Korea, which makes it impossible for him to ignore the escalating global tensions over the reclusive nation's nuclear program.

Russian President Vladimir Putin distanced himself from President Donald Trump on Wednesday, dismissing the US president as a man he's met once but has no personal relationship with.

The talks took place against a hard political backdrop. On the political front, there was no sign of any substantial breakthrough on the issues that have long divided Moscow and Riyadh, including the fact that they back rival sides in Syria's war. "We are in contact with our key partners and with Opec as a whole, and with major producers".

Russian Federation is strongly opposed to the idea of such a strike, an idea U.S. President Donald Trump has floated, favouring a mixture of diplomacy and economic incentives instead.

According to Danley's LinkedIn , she had worked previously at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno as a hostess. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation said they saw "no connection" between Paddock and worldwide terror groups.

The visit by the Saudi king - and his 1,000-strong delegation - is seen as an expression of that revived power, she says. Riyadh is playing an important role in unifying the Syrian opposition with the aim of adopting a more pragmatic position in political negotiations, which both Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation see as the only way to end the conflict.

Among the expected agreements is the establishment of a $1 billion fund for technology investment, cooperation in water desalination and energy efficiency in air-conditioners, as well as Saudi investment into toll-free roads in Russian Federation.

These agreements are "expected to play a pivotal role in the growth and development of the military and military systems industry in Saudi Arabia", Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI), the Sunni state's military industries firm said.

King Salman in his reply called Russian Federation a "friendly nation" and said his country is committed to strengthen ties "in the interests of peace and security".

The Saudi energy minister has said his country is open to all options.

Defense was another topic.

Iran has been backing Houthi rebels in Yemen, a close ally and next-door neighbor of Saudi Arabia. It has allocated 191 billion riyals ($51 billion), or 21% of its 2017 budget, to military spending.

Later the Saudi monarch invited President Putin to Riyadh.

"There is some interest, of course", he said. The latter has become a key player in the region and, while Saudi Arabia's ties with the United States remain solid, the new Saudi-Russian entente will be essential in bringing stability to a region in turmoil.
