Russia Concludes S-300 Missile Systems Contract To Iran

Russia has concluded the deliveries of S-300 antiaircraft missile systems to Iran, Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said.

"There are no problematic issues in this sphere and the contract has been concluded," Rogozin told TASS Friday.

Rogozin refused to say that the deliveries has begun, stating that the timeframe has already been mentioned in the contract.

Last week, a Russian Diplomat had said that it will begin deliveries of S-300s within days.  “I don’t know if this will happen today, but they (S-300 missiles) will be loaded (for shipment to Iran),” sZamir Kabulov, a department chief at the Russian Foreign Ministry, told Interfax on April 5 in Moscow.

In January 2015, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Iranian counterpart, Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan, agreed to move forward with the sale of five S-300PMU-1/SA-20 Gargoyle SAM systems (40 launchers) for $800 million.

Russia has also offered to license-produce the third-generation T-90s main battle tank in Iran. Both countries are also reportedly close to signing a contract for the co-production of an undisclosed number of Sukhoi Su-30 multirole fighter aircraft in Iran.
