    Russia attaches great importance to expanding multifaceted cooperation with Saudi Arabia, which is the largest producer of oil and without whom it is impossible to solve any serious international issue, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday at G20 summit.

    HANGZHOU (Sputnik) — The president stressed that it was highly important for Russia to maintain a constant dialogue with Saudi Arabia.

    "We attach great significance to expanding multifaceted and mutually beneficial cooperation with Saudi Arabia. This also applies to our bilateral relations, bearing in mind that we are the largest oil-producing countries. This also applies to international issues. We believe that without Saudi Arabia, no serious issue in the region, of course, cannot be solved," Putin said at the meeting with the Muhammad bin Salman, Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince.
