MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Monday that no phone call was planned between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman to discuss oil market volatility, but that one could be arranged at short notice if needed.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was answering a question about whether volatility on oil markets necessitated such a phone call.
