Allow me to wish you a warm welcome to Moscow.
We are very happy to meet with you in the capital of Russia.
Russia and Saudi Arabia have very long-standing and multilateral relations.
Your visit is of great importance to us, bearing in mind that Saudi Arabia is one of the leading nations in the Islamic world.
We have many issues which are of exceptional interest for both Russia and Saudi Arabia. We need to discuss bilateral information and key issues of international relations. It is very important, your highness, to coordinate our positions on these issues, on the problems which we are to discuss.
