The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Saudi king Salman and Russian president Putin discussed the situation in Syria over a phone call.

King Salman and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed as well the means to further expand fruitful cooperation in global oil markets, the Kremlin said.

The statement did not offer any details on what that expanded coordination could entail. Russia and Saudi Arabia are major players in a global pact on cutting oil output.

The two leaders also discussed Syria and defense sales, the statement said. It said the Saudi king had expressed his condolences to Putin regarding a plane crash at the weekend near Moscow that killed all 71 passengers and crew.
