"We agreed to hold another meeting of the intergovernmental commission of Russia and Saudi Arabia in October in Russia,  the middle of the month," he said.


Novak also added that during the meeting with Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud in Riyadh on July 29, the sides discussed a number of issues, including energy projects, housing and utilities, transportation, renewable energy development, oil and gas chemistry and technology. "Saudi Arabia has the relevant competences, so does the Russian Federation," the deputy prime minister noted.


In addition, Novak stressed that Russia and Saudi Arabia are also actively cooperating in social spheres, such as healthcare and education.
