The Russian presidential aide on military-technical cooperation: deliveries With-300 to Iran
“When they would remove all the limitations, all sanctions, I think we have enough serious development in the field of military-technical cooperation, partly it is already in progress on those things that do not fall under the sanctions, in future we are counting on very large projects. The interest of the Iranian side is very large. They really need serious updating almost all of its armed forces. In all directions. Everything needs upgrading, upgrade. Given that it is a large country with large armed forces, of course, we will focus on very large contracts, we’ll be talking about billions,” – said the assistant to the President of the Russian Federation.
As previously stated Kozhin, Russia began deliveries to Iran antiaircraft missile systems With-300 as part of the contract, the implementation of which was delayed by sanctions imposed by the UN Security Council. In early November entered into force a new contract to supply these systems to Iran. He was imprisoned once in the spring, Russian President Vladimir Putin has lifted a ban on the sale of these to Tehran anti-aircraft missile systems. It was reported that Iran will get the system version of s-300PMU-2.
Kozhin also said that Iran is interested in supplying all kinds of Russian weapons, not just anti-aircraft missile systems s-300.
