    Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister spoke about King Salman's upcoming visit to Moscow.

    "The visit of the Saudi Arabian king [Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud] and his big delegation is considered to be historic, as this is the first visit of the head of the Kingdom to Russia. During the visit, a number of important documents are expected to be signed, which will contribute to the development of our relations," Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said Wednesday at a meeting with Valentina Matvienko, the speaker of the Russian Federation Council, adding that "this visit will undoubtedly be successful."

    On September 21, an informed source told Sputnik that the Saudi King would visit Moscow on October 4-7 for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The same day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that preparations for the visit were underway.
