It is important that our positions on many topical issues of the regional and global agenda are very close. We stand together for the building of a fair democratic world order based on the rule of law and the peaceful coexistence of states, free of coercive diktat and all forms of discrimination," the president said.

Putin noted that ways of cooperation in the resolution of regional conflicts and crises, combating of international terrorist and extremist threats as well as cooperation in trade, economic, scientific, technological, humanitarian and other spheres will be discussed at the session.

The Russian leader hopes that joint work will be constructive and fruitful and will serve to strengthen mutual understanding and trust between the peoples of the countries. He also thanked Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for his personal attention to the organization of the meeting.
