"Our approach to this problem has been very strict: we have dismissed several thousand of imams from mosques for extremism, we modernize our educational system in order to rule out the possibility of misinterpretation of texts", al-Jubeir said.

The politician added that the agreements reached during Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud's visit to Russian Federation served the interests of both Moscow and Riyadh and would contribute to the establishment of stability in the region.

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

The Kremlin said on Monday that talks with Saudi Arabia over Moscow supplying Riyadh with advanced S-400 air defense missile systems had gone well from Russia's point of view so far. US Congress has 30 days to object.

The sale of the anti-aircraft systems to USA allies - Turkey and Saudi Arabia - was criticized in Washington, but did not affect the outcome of the deals.

The S-400 is a very capable missile-defense system, somewhat comparable to the US's MIM-104 Patriot, according to CSIS.

Despite increasing coverage over Saudi Arabia's involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks, the two countries share an interest over Iran's ballistic missile program in the Middle East.

"The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region", it said.

The Saudi king invited Putin to visit his country - an offer the Russian leader accepted - and said they planned to keep cooperating to keep world oil prices stable.

Thaad systems are being deployed in South Korea to protect against a possible missile attack from North Korea, but many Koreans have objected, fearing it would become a target that endangers lives of those who live near its launch sites. Saudi Arabia's neighbours, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, have also been supplied THAAD systems.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin earlier said commenting on the visit of Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz to Russia that Riyadh was interested in buying Russia's S-400 systems.
