h_99418399071134_bRussia might deliver a long-overdue S-300 air defense missile system to Iran, honoring a contract that was cancelled in 2010 following strong pressure from the West, Iranian and Russian media said on Tuesday. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu is visiting Tehran and signed an agreement with Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan to boost cooperation, Iran’s Fars semi-official news agency said. Fars said the two countries would resolve problems with the delivery of the advanced missile system, while Russia’s RIA state news confirmed the issue was once again under discussion. “A step was taken in the direction of cooperation on the economy and arms technology, at least for such defensive systems such as the S-300 and S-400. Probably we will deliver them,” RIA quoted Colonel General Leonid Ivashov as saying. Ivashov is the former head of the defense minister’s department of international cooperation. No further details were immediately available. More
