Qatar buys range of arms from Russia, discusses purchase of S-400 missiles

Qatar, which has already negotiated the purchase of AK rifles, grenade launchers and anti-tank missiles from Russia, is also in talks to procure state-of-the-art S-400 systems, the Russian ambassador to the Gulf country has said.

Qatar, which is now at odds with its Gulf neighbours, is expected to take a delivery of Russian conventional arms, including time-proven AK rifles, grenade launchers, machine guns and Kornet anti-tank missiles, according to Nurmakhmad Kholov, the Russian ambassador to Doha.

The Arab nation’s interest in buying Russian weapons extends beyond firearms, Kholov told TASS news agency: “Regarding S-400 air-defence systems, some discussions are underway about the issue, although there is no specific outcome so far.” Without going into details, the Russian envoy reiterated that the Qataris “seem to be willing” to acquire S-400s.
