Putin answered questions from Al Arabiya, Sky News Arabia and RT Arabic journalists in advance of his trip to Saudi Arabia on Russian-Saudi relations, the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Libya and the attacks on Saudi Aramco that have been widely attributed to Iran, Russia's ally in Syria.
When asked by Sky News Arabia about Russia's more passive role in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Trump administration's "deal of the century" peace plan, Putin said that his country's position on the conflict is that they "will support any deal that will bring peace," but must understand the contents of the plan.
