Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, received on Monday a telephone call from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
They discussed bilateral relations between their countries and ways of developing them in a number of fields. They also tackled issues of mutual concern.
The Kremlin said the leaders discussed developing bilateral cooperation in political, trade, economic and energy fields.
They also addressed cooperation within OPEC+ to secure the stability of the global energy market.
The ministers of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and others including Russia, a group known as OPEC+, are set to hold a virtual meeting on Wednesday.
The panel is expected to recommend keeping the oil producer group's current output policy unchanged when it meets this week, five OPEC+ delegates told Reuters on Monday.
