The visit of the king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdul-Aziz al Saud to Moscow in October 2017, has given a good impulse to development of bilateral relations between Russia and the Kingdom, said on Thursday Russian President Vladimir Putin.

«We remember the visit of the king of Saudi Arabia Salman to Russia, to Moscow. Please convey my best wishes to him. This gave a good impetus to our bilateral relations», — Putin said at a meeting with crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman al Saud.

According to the Russian President, relations between the two countries are effectively developing both in politics and in the economy, but in these areas there is still much to do.

«It is already clear that our cooperation is very effective and useful for the Russian Federation», — said Putin.
