Russia: Riyadh to polish image with PR office in Moscow

Crude oil prices gained as Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation, the world's biggest oil exporters, signaled continued cooperation on efforts to erode the surplus supply of crude globally. Congress still has to approve the deal.

The department said the sale of the equipment to the Saudi people would help provide a balance to a relatively unstable environment in the Gulf and to help the U.S. forces enlarge its allied grip on the region. "Contacts to implement this contract have been very positive and have had very good preliminary results".

"An agreement has been reached with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia to deliver the S-400 air-defense system, antitank Kornet-EM rocket systems, TOS-1A (multiple rocket-launcher) systems, AGS-30 automated grenade launchers, and Kalashnikov AK-103 assault rifles", the RIA Novosti news agency cited her as saying.

Russian Federation will also supply Saudi Arabia with Kornet-EM anti-tank missile systems, Buratino TOS-1 heavy flamethrower systems, AGS-30 automatic grenade launchers and Kalashnikov AK-103 assault rifles, Vorobyova said.

During this week's visit to Russia, the Saudi King has already met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

The State Department said it would advise Congress that, in Saudi hands, the system would act to stabilize the situation in the Gulf and help defend USA forces in the region and their allies, who face a growing Iranian missile capability.

The deputy commander of Russia's Aerospace Force, Viktor Gumenny, said that the S-400 systems began to be armed with missiles capable of hitting targets in near space.
