Russia, Iran to Sign S-300 Contract Soon

By John Lee.

Russia and Iran will sign an agreement for the delivery of advanced Russian-built S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems “soon,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov reportedly said on Wednesday at the Russian Arms Expo 2015.

He added that all political questions involved in the Iran S-300 deal have been solved, a possible reference to an ongoing dispute between the two sides concerning a $4 billion lawsuit Iran filed against Russia’s state arms export agency Rosoboronexport in 2011.

In April, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted a presidential ban on the sale of S-300s to Iran.
