Relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia are actively developing, and coordination on regional affairs has reached a high level, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said today, starting off negotiations with Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir.
"Thank you for accepting our invitation," the Russian top diplomat stressed. Lavrov added that they consider it necessary to continue their dialogue and see how they are advancing in the implementation of the agreements that were reached when King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud was visiting Russia in October 2017.
"Our bilateral relations are rapidly developing in all areas. Our coordination and sharing views on international and regional affairs are also at a very good level," TASS cited Lavrov as saying.
"I’m confident that today’s conversation will be useful in terms of supporting the high development rates of our cooperation in all areas," the Russian foreign minister stressed.
