Kremlin says S-400 missile talks with Saudi Arabia on track

US approves $15 billion sale of THAAD missile system to Saudi Arabia

Meanwhile, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday that talks with Riyadh about buying its S-400 air-defense system were going well despite Saudi Arabia's THAAD order with the U.S.

"We will not let anyone spread the ideology of hatred, to finance that kind of ideology or terrorism", he said.

When asked whether a possible US deal with Riyadh might affect the Russian arrangement, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, on a conference call with reporters, said talks had been progressing well. "Contacts to implement this contract have been very positive and have had very good preliminary results".

Saudi Arabia typically buys its military hardware from the USA or the U.K., and the S-400 deal could signal a shift in politics as the kingdom needs Russian Federation to support oil prices.

The politician added that the agreements reached during Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud's visit to Russian Federation served the interests of both Moscow and Riyadh and would contribute to the establishment of stability in the region.

Saudi Arabia is a longstanding US ally in the Middle East and its arms deals with Moscow have caused disquiet in Washington.

On Saturday, the US State Department announced the approval to sell Saudi Arabia 44 THAAD anti-missile defence systems, 360 interceptor missiles, 16 mobile fire-control and communication stations and seven THAAD radars at an estimated price tag of $US15 billion, according to a press release from the Pentagon's Defence Security Cooperation Agency.

Al-Jubeir said Riyadh would cooperate with Moscow in the fight against terrorism, and many militants from both countries were fighting with Daesh.

"Therefore we are confident that this cooperation should not be a worry for anyone".
