This is the first visit to Russian Federation by a Saudi monarch and both the countries have already struck a deal on weapons' sale and how to stabilise the oil market.

Along with S-400 anti-aircraft missiles, Saudi Arabia is also set to buy Kornet anti-tank guided missile systems and multiple rocket launchers.

Addressing a plenary session of the Russian Energy Week, which kicked off in Moscow on October 3, he said the two countries share fundamental interests, including energy policies, fighting cybercrime, non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, anti-terrorism efforts and dealing with regional conflicts.

Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdul Aziz harshly criticised Iran on his first visit to Russian Federation, which has close relations with the Islamic republic.

During the meeting, the Saudi king advocated the resolution of the crisis in Syria in accordance with the June 2012 Geneva Communique on the creation of a transition government with members of the Bashar Al Assad government and the opposition that guaranteed the territorial integrity of Syria.

King Selman's meetings in Moscow include energy market, Middle East, civil war in Syria and Iran.

On Wednesday, Russian energy minister Alexander Novak told TASS news agency that Saudi Arabia is investing $1 billion into energy projects in Russia though he did not give details or specify if these deals would be signed during the visit.

He and Russian president, Vladimir Putin, have been discussing trade deals, the crisis in Syria and the price of oil, among other topics.

"The two have been coordinating their efforts to cap oil outputs and therefore boost the price of energy, but of course there is the changing political structure of the Middle East too", he said. "Relations between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia have reached an historical moment".
