The most significant development was however the signing the arms agreements.Indeed, after about a decade of negotiation, there is finally a breakthrough in military relations between Moscow and Riyadh.Russia is the world's second-largest arms supplier after the United States, and is seeking to cement its position in new markets.

United States military sales to Saudi Arabia has come under increased scrutiny as a Saudi-led coalition is involved in military intervention in Yemen.

The sale, supplied by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon - also includes 43 trucks, generators, electrical power units, communications equipment, tools, test and maintenance equipment and "personnel training and training equipment".

"THAAD's exo-atmospheric, hit-to-kill capability will add an upper-tier to Saudi Arabia's layered missile defence architecture".

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.

Mr Putin hailed the visit from the king - the first sitting Saudi monarch to visit Russian Federation - as a "landmark event".

The U.S.is also focused on increasing missile defense at home and for allies as tensions heat up in the Pacific and the Middle East, as well as with Russian Federation.

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.

However, despite the difficulties, Saudi Arabia has chose to diversify its military suppliers, as it understands it can't rely on Washington so heavily.

"This potential sale will substantially increase Saudi Arabia's capability to defend itself against the growing ballistic missile threat in the region", a statement said.

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