Saudi King on Historic Visit to Moscow

Saudi King on Historic Visit to Moscow

As part of the four-day trip, the king is due to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday for talks in the Kremlin expected to focus on the global oil market and the conflict in Syria.

"We have zero personal relationship", Putin said Wednesday at the Russian Energy Week conference in Moscow, according to Bloomberg Politics. "But on the whole, if speaking about a possible extension, this should be at least until the end of 2018".

During his visit to Moscow, Saudi King Salman signed multi-billion dollar economic agreements, including a partnership between Russian Federation, the Public Investment Fund (PIF) and Mubadala to invest in infrastructure. In September, energy minister Alexander Novak signalled willingness to prolong the cuts if needed, while also making clear the commitment wasn't open-ended.

Brent crude was up 35 cents at $56.15 a barrel by 1000 GMT.

The recovery in oil markets has helped other commodities, he added. While the nation's economic growth accelerated to the fastest pace in nearly five years in the second quarter amid recovery in crude prices, the supply glut has taken longer than expected to clear. "In the years and decades to come, we want shale to continue to be a major contributor but we believe the pace of its growth will be more important".

Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia are heavily dependent on oil exports and the global plunge of the price of crude that began in 2014 lashed both their economies.

Falih said oil demand was healthy around the world, and there was a steady reduction in global oil inventories.

"These delays are not critical, there is nothing bad there, but as I have always said ... it is the most hard thing to resolve tasks at a final stage", Putin is reported to have told a meeting of the presidential council for sport. And Russia is close to Iran, a fierce adversary of Saudi Arabia despite their status as OPEC members.

OPEC Secretary General Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo said, "The issue is about stability".

"LNG (liquefied natural gas) is one of the area where we are looking to collaborate with Russian partners", he said, giving an example of the MoUs that will be signed with Gazprom and Gazprom Neft.
