A team of Russian military experts visited Saudi Arabia in late August to discuss with Saudi military committees the possible sale to Riyadh of T-95 main battle tanks and Mi-17 helicopters, he told AFP, requesting anonymity.
"The visit was not the first. It was preceded by several visits by experts" from the Russian state arms export monopoly Rosoboronexport, according to the source.
Saudi arms experts have also visited Moscow to discuss Russian offers of weapons, and tests were carried out on the T-95 in Saudi Arabia to determine the tank's suitability to harsh desert conditions, the diplomat added.
