A positive trend in the Syrian settlement would not have been possible without the contribution of Saudi Arabia, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian leader pointed out that working with the kingdom in resolving regional crises is important.
“In this regard, I would like to note the positive role of Saudi Arabia in resolving the crisis in Syria. We work most closely with Turkey and Iran, this is well known to everyone, but without the contribution of Saudi Arabia to the settlement process in Syria, it seems to me that it would be absolutely impossible to achieve a positive tendency”, – Putin said in an interview with Al Arabiya, Sky Nеws Arabia and RT Arabic on the eve of his visit to Riyadh.
The President of the Russian Federation expressed gratitude to King Salman ibn Abdul-Aziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud for a constructive position, and also expressed confidence that his visit would give a good impetus to the development of bilateral relations and cooperation in the international arena.The third businessman of Soviet descent associated with Trump is arrested in the United States
