Russian Federation has denied any responsibility in an embarrassing escalator malfunction at the start of the Saudi king's historic visit to Moscow to meet President Vladimir Putin.

Saudi King Salman arrived in Moscow on Wednesday on the first ever visit by a Saudi monarch to Russian Federation.

The talks were held on Thursday with the participation of other Russian and Saudi officials. That marked a shift for the kingdom, which buys most of its military supplies from the United States and Britain.

"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.

Russian state media said the visit represented a recognition by Riyadh that Moscow's influence is on the rise in the Middle East after Mr Putin's military intervention in Syria changed the balance of power in favour of president Bashar Al Assad.

For his part, Jubeir said that "we believe that new horizons have opened up for the development of our relations that we could not previously have imagined".

On Thursday, Putin received the monarch in the gold-decorated St. Andrew Hall, one of the grandest spaces in the Kremlin, attended by soldiers in ceremonial dress and with an orchestra playing the two countries' national anthems.

Saudi Arabia's energy minister said that Russian Federation has helped to breathe new life into OPEC and that shale can be a major contributor to the market in years to come. But Saudi, a long-standing ally of Washington, is keen to boost ties with Moscow as a major player in the Syrian conflict and a fellow oil producer with shared interests in supporting energy prices.

Several investment deals, including those relating to a liquefied natural gas project and petrochemical plants would be signed during the visit. US light crude was up 10 cents at $50.08.

On Wednesday, Mr Putin said a global deal to cut oil production in order to raise prices could be extended to the end of next year. We also attach great importance to the stabilization of the situation in the Middle East and in certain countries of this region.
