Military contracts were the focus of talks between President Putin and the King Abdullah II of Jordan, at the Kremlin on Monday. Other issues discussed were peace efforts between Israel and Palestine and security in Iraq.
It's the eighth time the two leaders have met.
Last year alone, trade between the two countries more than doubled.
The King said Russia's participation in the Middle East peace process is of great value.
