    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – "Of course, it is very important to discuss your view of what is happening in the world. I had an opportunity in China to discuss the same issues with some of your colleagues. In that context your visit Your Majesty is very well-timed," Putin said during his talks with the king.

    The king of Bahrain also visited the Russian Defense Ministry's Army-2016 forum.

    "I know that this time you wanted to see the capabilities of our defense-industrial sector. Hopefully, you saw what we can offer to our friends and partners," Putin noted.

    The Russian Defense Ministry's Army-2016 forum is taking place on September 6-11 in Kubinka, a western suburb of Moscow. The forum brings together representatives from the Russian defense industry, research institutes, universities, as well as foreign companies.
