Salman, met by Putin in the Kremlin, said he was convinced that there were opportunities to diversify economic cooperation with Russia.

Saudi Arabia wants to establish an international centre to fight terrorism under the aegis of the United Nations, Salman said. He also said he wanted to see an independent Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem.
