MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes it is incorrect to link Russia’s dialogues with Saudi Arabia over the situation on the world energy markets and attitudes to political issues, in particular, the situation in Syria, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"These are different matters," he stated.
"Russia and Saudi Arabia are the world’s largest oil producers. Naturally, they are in talks regarding the observance of their own interests," he said. "Both parties are naturally interested in such a dialogue."
"These are not inter-related matters," Peskov replied, when asked if agreements on oil might influence the dialogue over a settlement in Syria.
Peskov refrained from comments on the outlook for Russia’s dialogue on the situation in oil markets with Iran and Iraq.
"I have no answer. I know nothing about such plans," he said.
"We’ve said more than once that Russia is interested in maintaining the dialogue with the producers of energy resources for an exchange of opinion on the situation in energy markets," he said.
