Several Middle Eastern countries have expressed interest in Russia's S-400 air defence system, a representative from Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said on Sunday.
"Several countries from the Middle East have expressed interest in the [S-400] systems. We will look into the requests made by foreign entities into these systems", company spokeswoman Maria Vorobyova said at the Dubai Airshow 2019, which started on Sunday.
Vorobyeva added that Russia and Riyadh are currently discussing terms for a 2017 deal the two sides signed on the delivery of Russian S-400 air defence systems to Saudi Arabia, to go into effect.
"[Russia] and Saudi Arabia signed a deal in 2017 for the delivery of S-400 'Triumph' [air defence systems]. Currently, we are discussing with our partners mutually agreed-upon conditions for the deal to go into effect", Maria Vorobyeva said.
This year, Russia completed the delivery of all components of the S-400 air defence missile systems to Turkey. According to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, the S-400 will be fully operational in April 2020.
