June 9, Lavrov and Saud al-Faysal had a telephone conversation at the initiative from the Saudi side. Their attention was centered on the ways of settling the crisis in Syria and conflicts in the region.
Economic cooperation is developing, too, especially in the energy sector. The two countries have rounded up coordination of an intergovernmental framework agreement on the utilization of peaceful atomic energy and have agreed on further steps to prepare the document for signing.
