In addition, they will look at the settling of political crises in the Middle East, coordination of actions on global energy markets and cooperation in civilian atomic energy.
Special attention will be given to the ways of rebuffing the Islamic State and other extremist groupings in the context of the situation in the Middle East.
Political settlement in Syria is also on the list of the main items for discussion.
Lavrov and al-Jubeir are expected to take up the problems that were in the focus at the trilateral talks with the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry.
"The ministers will discuss the opportunities for Russian-Saudi cooperation and struggle with terrorism, which meets the interests of both countries," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary on the talks.

By tradition, the agenda of the talks also embraces the Palestinian-Israeli peace settlement.
The situation in the Persian Gulf will be viewed in the light of a recent agreement with Iran on its nuclear program. "Russia hopes to work on building up stability in the region in the framework of our concept for security and in the format of other concept that are concentrated in a particular region.
