    Russia and Saudi Arabia signed a preliminary agreement on the supply of arms

    As Ivan Safronov writes in his article "Russia and Saudi Arabia Charge their Arms With Conversations," published in today's issue of Kommersant, on Monday Sergei Chemezov, Director General of Rostek State Corporation, said that Russia and Saudi Arabia had signed a preliminary agreement providing for the supply of arms and equipment At $ 3.5 billion Moscow has repeatedly tried to enter the arms market of Riyadh. Contract packages were discussed up to $ 20 billion, but unlike Washington, Russia has never reached the conclusion of solid contracts with the Saudi. According to Kommersant's information, the intentions of the Saudi leadership in Moscow are to be understood at the end of the visit of King Salman al-Saud - it can take place before the end of the year.

    Mr. Chemezov told about the talks on the deliveries of Russian weapons to Saudi Arabia in an interview with Tass. "We concluded a preliminary agreement for $ 3.5 billion." However, the Saudis have set a condition that the contract will come into force if we transfer some of the technology to them and open production in the territory of the kingdom, "the head of the state corporation said." We think what can be shared . The simplest thing is to build a plant for the production of small arms (the Kalashnikov concern .- "Kommersant"). " Officials of Rostech, Rosoboronexport and the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) refrained from additional comments on Monday.

    According to two top managers of the defense industry enterprises, even initialing such an impressive package of contracts is not a guarantee of concluding solid agreements. Over the past decade and a half, Riyadh has shown interest in a wide range of Russian military products (from Mi-35M helicopters, T-90 tanks and BMP-3 infantry armored vehicles to the Antey-2500 and S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems). In an interview with Kommersant, Chemezov said that the Saudis constantly asked about the Iskander-E operational and tactical complex, but specified that it was on the list of products banned for export: "We are not going to make an exception for them" (see. "Kommersant" from June 3, 2016). Several times the sides managed to agree on the range of weapons, but Riyadh was not in a hurry to sign legally binding documents, focusing on arms purchases from the United States.

    I personally don't like Saudi government and Russia shouldn't really be dealing with them they will only use the weapons to attack Yemen and Saudi back rebels in Syria all I can say is that I hope Russia got huge prices for the sale just like Usa get when they sell to gulf states

    The Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Russia's state company for exporting military products ROSOBORONEXPORT to manufacture high-grade military equipment in the kingdom.

    The agreement, SAMI announced, includes the transfer of technology for the local production of the Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) system, the TOS-1A advanced multiple rocket launcher and AGS-30 automatic grenade launchers with grenades.

    “With the guidance of His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, the two parties signed these agreements, which are expected to play a pivotal role in the growth and development of the military and military systems industry in Saudi Arabia,” the company said in a statement sent to Al Arabiya English.

    The memorandum of understanding focuses on localizing the manufacturing and sustainment of advance armament systems in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in line with the objectives of Vision 2030.

    Furthermore, SAMI said in their statement, cooperation is being set to localize the manufacturing and sustainment of parts of the S-400 air defense system that the kingdom agreed to purchase on Thursday from Russia.

    Local production as well will take place for the Kalashnikov AK-103 assault rifle and its ammunition.

    Educational and training programs for Saudi citizens will also take place according ot the agreement, to ensure the sustainability and development of the military industries sector in Saudi Arabia.

    “These agreements are expected to have tangible economic contributions and create hundreds of direct jobs. It will also transfer cutting edge technologies that will act as a catalyst for localizing 50 percent of the Kingdom's military spending as targeted by Vision 2030 which was launched by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense,” the company said in their statement.

    Yeah I know, but we're not a rich enough country to refuse an offer to make some money due to some vague principles or concerns.

    If the Saudis are goin to tear up the place they might as well be paying us royalties, and not US or Chinese small-arms producers.
