KUWAIT CITY, February 14. /TASS/. The date for a Russian visit by King of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has not yet been appointed, the Saudi foreign ministry said on Sunday.
"Media reports predicting a date for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud's visit to the Federal Republic of Russia are incorrect as no timetable has yeet been fixed for the visit," the Saudi Press Agency said citing an official source at the country’s foreign ministry.
Earlier in the week, some Russian mass media said the Saudi King was expected to pay a visit to Russia in mid-March. No information about the agenda was available.
Russia and Saudi Arabia have profound differences on key regional and international problems, including the Syrian settlement and oil market stabilization. In the recent months, the sides have maintained active contacts in a bid to resolve the Syrian crisis. It was reported in late January that Riyadh had offered Moscow to reduce oil production by five percent to have oil prices go up. These reports were confirmed by Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak.
