President Vladimir Putin on Thursday met Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.
The two leaders discussed further bilateral cooperation between their countries and various international issues, including the fight against terrorism.
After the talks, Putin said that the discussions mainly concentrated on status of bilateral relations and paths for further development between two countries.
Touching on international issues, Putin said that Russia welcomed a UN resolution which recognises Palestine statehood.
Mahathir said that he and Putin also discussed fighting international terrorism and said they hold similar views.
Malaysia wants more Russian aircraft and military equipment and hopes to boost overall trade with Russia.
Malaysia's military uses several Russian-made fighter jets and tanks and Mahathir is to visit a flight research centre outside Moscow during his visit to see a Sukhoi 30MKM fighter jet that is competing for a Malaysian contract.
Mahathir originally had been scheduled to visit in September but the trip was postponed after the September 11 attacks in the United States.
