President Putin Cites Saudi Arabia in Potential Positive Syria Settlement

Oct. 14, 2019 (EIRNS)—On Oct. 13, one day before his visit to Saudi Arabia, Russian President Vladimir Putin posted his interview with Al Arabiya, Sky News Arabia, and RT Arabic, in both video and text on the Kremlin website. Among many things in the 40-minute interview, President Putin emphasized:

“Equally important are our joint efforts to resolve the regional crises. In this regard, I would like to emphasize the positive role Saudi Arabia has played in resolving the Syrian crisis. We are working especially closely with Turkey and Iran, as you all know. But I believe that without Saudi Arabia’s contribution towards a Syrian settlement, it would have been impossible to achieve a positive trend. Therefore, I would like to express our gratitude to both the King and the Crown Prince for this constructive approach. I am confident that my visit will help to build up the momentum both in developing bilateral relations and enhancing cooperation in international organizations.”
