Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will discuss the Syrian conflict with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Tuesday.

During the visit, four cooperation agreements are expected to be inked between Saudi Arabia and Russia amid discussions on bilateral ties.

Prince Mohammed’s trip to Moscow comes just over a week after Saudi Arabia hosted US President Donald Trump in Riyadh.

After Tuesday’s meeting with Putin, Prince Mohammed is due to head to the Azerbaijani capital of Baku.
