    Moscow and Riyadh will discuss development of bilateral cooperation at the intergovernmental commission in the end of October.

    SOCHI (Sputnik) — Moscow and Riyadh will discuss the development of bilateral cooperation at the intergovernmental commission in the end of October, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Saturday.

    "We will have an intergovernmental commission with Saudi Arabia at the end of October. We will discuss joint projects, development of trade and economic cooperation not only in the energy sector but in all areas," Novak told reporters.

    Earlier this week, Saudi Ambassador to Russia Abdulrahman Al-Rassi said that Riyadh was counting on long-term strategic cooperation with Moscow, including the security sphere.

    Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud is planning to visit Russia "very soon," although no date has been set yet, according to the ambassador.
