MOSCOW, September 26. /TASS/. Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud have discussed the ways to strengthen cooperation in the fight against Islamic State and other terrorist groups in a telephone conversation initiated by the Russian side, the Kremlin press service said on Saturday.
"During a telephone conversation held on September 16, the two heads of state exchanged views on regional security, first, from the point of view of seeking ways to settle the situation in Syria and to enhance effective international interaction in the fight against so-called Islamic State and other terrorist groups," the Kremlin said.
Along with this, the two heads of state focused "on the agenda related to settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict with regard to a tense situation around the sacred places in East Jerusalem."
"Mutual interest in promotion of the dialogue on international agenda and the further strengthening of bilateral cooperation in various spheres" were covered in the conversation as well.
Besides, Putin expressed condolences to the Saudi king over numerous deaths in the tragedy near the holy city of Mecca.
