The US State Department has approved the possible sale of a anti-missile defence system to Saudi Arabia at an estimated cost of $15 billion, the Pentagon has said as it labelled Iran a regional threat.

Saudi Arabia asked to purchase 44 Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) launchers and 360 missiles, as well as fire control stations and radars.

“This sale furthers US national security and foreign policy interests, and supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian and other regional threats,” the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation agency said in a statement.
