Saudi king's visit to Moscow highlights Russia's role in Middle East

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

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

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.

The State Department said the USA government approved the sale of its advanced Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) missile defense system to Saudi Arabia in a $15 billion deal that officials claim furthers U.S. national security and foreign policy interests.

Mr Putin hailed the visit from the king - the first sitting Saudi monarch to visit Russian Federation - as a "landmark event". US Congress has 30 days to object.

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 US State Department has approved an estimated $15bn possible sale of a THAAD anti-missile defence system to Saudi Arabia.

"Lots of militants from both Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia are fighting for the Islamic State [terrorist group, outlawed in Russia]", the Saudi top diplomat said.

Iran, whose hostile behaviour has got the U.S. and Saudi Arabia concerned recently, also happens to have one of the biggest ballistic missile programs in the Middle East.

Washington deployed THAAD, which is used to guard against ballistic-missile attacks, to South Korea this year for defense against North Korea.

The US deal is believed to be part of a $110 billion arms package promised by President Trump to the Saudi kingdom during a visit in May.
