3 Arab Leaders Meet Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted the Egyptian president, the Jordanian king and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi in Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the Syrian crisis and take part in a showcase of Russia's military industry.
Jordanian King Abdullah II and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, who is widely seen as holding the reins of power in UAE, reportedly arrived Monday night, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi arrived on Tuesday to attend the Maks-2015 military exhibition, Middle East Eye reported.
Despite foreign interest in the Russian space and defense industries, no international contracts are expected to be signed during the salon, a spokesman for Russia's state defense company Rosoboronexport said last week.
Saudi news outlet Al Arabiya reported that strategic talks were expected to take place among the leaders. According to the agency, the talks will include the conflicts in Yemen and Syria, among other things.
The Kremlin has also said Putin's talks with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi will be focused on energy, as well as "stability and security" in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
Meanwhile, the Russian president and the head of Jordan's King are also expected to discuss the prospect of jointly building Jordan's first nuclear station, according to the Kremlin.
Government delegations from the Middle East have been flooding into Moscow in recent weeks and days, with a Syrian opposition arriving on Sunday for talks on the crisis in their war-torn country.
