STRELNA, June 18. /TASS/. King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia has accepted President Vladimir Putin's invitation to visit Russia, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Dinister Mohammad bin Salman said on Thursday.
"The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques confirms that he accepts the invitation to visit Russia," the prince said.
He has also invited Putin to visit Saudi Arabia on behalf of the king. The Russian leader said he would be happy to visit the country.
