Maduro Will Discuss Military Cooperation with Russian Federation in Wake of Trump's Comments

Reuters

In the first ever visit to Moscow by a reigning Saudi monarch, King Salman is expected to prioritize oil cooperation but will also discuss differences with Russian Federation over Syria and Iran.

Clean energy produces about 84 percent of electricity in Russia for the moment and the figure is expected to reach 90 percent by 2035, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday.

Anna Borshchevskaya, a fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, says Russian Federation has no capacity to replace the United States as Saudi Arabia's key ally. Mr Putin expressed hope that it would boost ties between the two countries.

Saudi Arabia has agreed to buy Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile systems, Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television reported on Thursday.

United States 'd E consent to the hardening of abortion law
Anti-abortion groups cited White House endorsement as a key sign of progress, although most abortions occur before 20 weeks. The measure , which has 170 co-sponsors , is also known as H.R. 36.

"This partnership between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia has catalyzed cooperation of an unprecedented coalition of 24 countries (OPEC and non-OPEC)".

"We aim to strengthen our relations in the interests of peace and security, in the interests of developing the world economy", the Saudi king responded.

The move by OPEC and non-OPEC producers to balance the market is working, but the work is not yet finished, Saudi Arabia's oil minister said from Moscow.

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary", Trump said.

Facebook and Google promoted fake news in wake of Las Vegas shooting
The Las Vegas incident claimed the lives of at least 59 people, injuring hundreds more, according to various media reports . Twitter said it too was stepping up efforts to weed out false reports on the shooting .

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) in cooperation with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) is considering joint work on 25 investment projects in various areas, according to Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak.

Only two years ago, the idea of a Saudi monarch visiting Moscow would have seem far-fetched, as Moscow and Riyadh have opposed each other for decades on every major regional conflict, from Afghanistan to the role of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The two leaders had a "friendly and substantial discussion based on a desire by Moscow and Riyadh to consistently grow mutually-beneficial partnerships in all spheres", Lavrov said at a press conference alongside his Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir.

The news from Moscow supported prices for oil, Russia's key export.

President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that a military strike against North Korea created to destroy its nuclear and missile program might not succeed because Pyongyang could have hidden military facilities that nobody knows about.
