Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia have signed an agreement on the purchase of Russia's S-400 missile system, a defense cooperation official said Monday.

U.S. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Turkey also has plans to buy the S-400 system instead of the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS), which is jointly built by Lockheed as well as German and Italian defense companies. "Contacts to implement this contract have been very positive and have had very good preliminary results".

When asked about fears that Saudi Arabia could use the S-400 system against Iran, a Russian ally, Peskov said Moscow's decision to offer the missiles to Riyadh was not aimed at any third party.

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.
