MOSCOW, Russia – Russia and Saudi Arabia have signed contracts on air defense systems, Head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugayev revealed Rossiya 24 on Monday.

“We have well-known contracts on air defense and other issues, which have been signed,” Shugayev said.

He did not reveal which particular systems the deal was about.

However the press service of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation said Russia and Saudi Arabia had reached agreements for the supplies of S-400 missile systems.

The urgency for Riyadh is most likely because of the Yemeni resistance threats of targeting Saudi oil tankers and airports in response to their aggression against the impoverished country.
