Jailed Kremlin Critic Calls on Russians to Protest on Putin's Birthday

Jailed Kremlin Critic Calls on Russians to Protest on Putin's Birthday

The deal between OPEC, led by Saudi Arabia, and several non-OPEC countries including Russian Federation, to curb supply has helped stabilize markets but has yet to boost prices enough to ease the pain for oil-dependent economies.

Falih said Saudi Arabia wants to develop ties with Russian Federation further, particularly in the private sector.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman said at the start of talks in Moscow with Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Thursday that the worldwide community must take responsibility for what is happening to the Muslim Rohingya community in Myanmar. According to representatives of the Kremlin, issues of defense cooperation between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia are going to be discussed as well.

The leaders and high-level representatives are expected to tackle what has positioned them on opposing sides of a bloody warfare in Syria. Signatories to the document were Alexander Dyukov, CEO of Gazprom Neft, and Amin H. Nasser, President and CEO, Saudi Aramco.

At the Russian Energy Week forum in Moscow, Novak said Russia is implementing oil production cuts as agreed with OPEC and non-OPEC countries, and are achieving the objectives that they set.

On his journey into central Moscow from Vnukovo airport late on Wednesday, King Salman's limousine passed billboards bearing his photograph and messages in Russian and Arabic welcoming him.

The Saudi monarch's decision to visit Russian Federation, now of all times, marks a new shift in Riyadh's foreign policy, Vyacheslav Smirnov, director of the Scientific and Research Institute for Political Sociology, told Radio Sputnik.




A joint Saudi-Russian investment fund was launched worth $1 billion.

Speaking in an interview broadcast on Al Arabiya TV on Monday, Novak said that the fund will focus on "strengthening of cooperation in oil, gas, electricity renewable energy and other projects for oil and gas equipment". That marked a shift for the kingdom, which buys most of its military kit from the United States and Britain.

Several investment agreements will be signed during King Salman's trip and plans for a US$1-billion fund to invest in energy projects are likely to be finalised.

"I haven't decided whether I'm going to run at all".

West Texas Intermediate for November delivery rose 21 cents to $50.19 a barrel as of 10:13 a.m. London time.

The leaders of the world's largest energy exporters also discussed the Opec agreement to cap oil output.

The Kremlin said ahead of the visit that Salman and Putin would also discuss the Middle East, "especially focusing on conflict situations in the region".
