The itinerary of his visit is fully devoted to meeting with high-rank members of Saudi political leadership.
Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier the range of issues he is going to discuss in Jeddah includes the situation in Syria and Iraq.
“Situation in Syria and around it and the developments in Iraq will come into focus in the course of discussions,” the ministry spokesman said. “Other issues include security in the Gulf area and the pressing aspects of the Russian-Saudi dialogue in the political sphere and in trade relations.”
Russia and Saudi Arabia are conducting active dialogue in various spheres. June 3, Saudi Foreign Minister Prine Saud al-Faysal Al Saud visited Sochi where he held a meeting with President Vladimir Putin and Sergei Lavrov.
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.
