The Kremlin said that Putin also held a telephone conversation with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to present in detail the proposals contained in a joint US-Russian agreement on ceasefire in Syria.

The Kremlin said that King Salman welcomed the proposal, expressing the kingdom’s readiness to help make it work.

“The King of Saudi Arabia welcomed the agreements reached and expressed his readiness to work jointly with Russia to make them work,” the Kremlin said.

Putin and King Salman agreed to continue contacts on this matter, it added.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has hailed the ceasefire deal as a “long-awaited signal of hope” in resolving the five-year-long crisis in Syria, urging all warring sides to abide by it.

Syria is in the midst of a deadly turmoil since March 2011.

More than 470,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced in Syria over the past five years.

Saudi Arabia is among the regional countries wildly known as the major supporters of Daesh terror group.
