The royal court, in a statement, said the three-day visit, by invitation from President Putin, was as part of the kingdom's policy "to maintain contacts with world leaders in the interest of the people of Saudi Arabia and the Arab and Islamic nations issues."

He suggested Switzerland as the neutral country.
