BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be receiving the Russian-made S-400 air defense system in the near future, Saudi Ambassador to Russia Ra’ed Khaled Qrimli stated on Tuesday, as reported by Tass News Agency.

Qrimli stated during a visit to the All-Russia Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Art that the date for the delivery has yet to be established.

“The discussion is still in progress, no final decision has been made yet,” he told reporters.

Russia’s presidential aide for military-technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said in February 2018 all documents concerning the supply of S-400 to Saudi Arabia had been signed and all parameters agreed.

Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and India are next in line to receive the Russian-made S-400 air defense system, with the latter two nations expecting deliveries by 2019.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
