Russia to sell advanced defense system to Saudis

Deal deters Moscow's sale of missile shield to Iran
Russia is slated to sell to Saudi Arabia its most advanced air-defense system in a deal the Saudis hope will deter Moscow from selling a less advanced system to Iran, a senior Egyptian intelligence official told WND.

"the Saudis are to purchase Russia's S-400 anti-missile shield to make moot the possibility of Russian selling the less advance S-300 system to Iran"

WND earlier this month quoted an Egyptian intelligence official stating Saudi Arabia is cooperating with Israel on the Iranian nuclear issue."
