    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Saudi Arabian counterpart Adel Jubeir will hold talks in Moscow on August 11, a source in the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Russia told RIA Novosti.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian side has not yet confirmed this information.

    ‘Indeed, the meeting will be held on Tuesday [August 11]," the representative of the embassy said.

    Earlier this month, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said the Saudi Foreign Minister would visit Moscow in mid-August to discuss with his Russian counterpart a visit by the Saudi King Salman scheduled for the end of 2015.

    This would be the first visit of the Saudi minister to Russia. The two ministers are expected to discuss global security, oil prices and military issues.

    On Monday, Lavrov met with US Secretary of State John Kerry and Jubeir in the Qatari capital of Doha to discuss the Syrian civil war.
