MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud had a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in China.

"A very positive meeting. Both sides expressed interest taking bilateral relations — economic trade, investment, and political, to a more advanced level… There was an exchange of views on the Syrian issue, there are certain nuances in the approaches of the two sides, but at the same time, let's say, a will to intensify dialogue in all areas is able to neutralize these differences in approaches," Peskov told reporters.

He added that the Saudi side had expressed willingness to have a more constrictive and intensive approach to joint projects with Russia.
