MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, of Bahrain, discussed military-technical cooperation issues during the latter’s visit to Russia earlier this week, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

“Military-technical cooperation issues were actively discussed with the Russian side on several occasions, including contacts with Russian President Vladimir Putin during King of Bahrain’s recent visit,” Peskov said, when asked if Russia might sell its air defense systems S-400 to that country.

Putin and the King of Bahrain met in the Kremlin on September 6.

The two leaders discussed ways of struggle against terrorism, the situation in Syria and trading and economic cooperation.
