TEHRAN, December 8. /TASS/. Iran intends to buy the T-90 tanks from Russia, Commander of the Iranian Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said in an interview to local reporters on Tuesday.
"Our ties with Russia in the field of equipment supply are established, and we have on our agenda the purchase of T-90 tanks," Pourdastan told reporters on Tuesday, quoted by the Tasnim news agency. He expressed the hope that the corresponding contracts will be concluded and Iranian experts will go to Russia to acquire the experience of operation of this modern equipment.
Iranian experts will make a trip to Russia to sign the related contracts with Russians, the Iranian commander stressed, adding, however, that no such contract has been signed yet. "We will tap into the capacities of any country for the improvement of our capabilities," Pourdastan said.
Iran and Russia in recent years have boosted their cooperation in various defense fields including the supply of military equipment. In the most recent case, Russia started delivering the S-300 missile defense system to Iran a couple of days ago years after the contract was signed between the two sides, Tasnim reported.
Back in October, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan highlighted the significance of defense collaborations between Tehran and Moscow, especially under the current circumstances in the region. "The current situation necessitates that Iran and Russia, through the political wills of the two countries’ leaders, develop their cooperation in political, economic, and defense fields," General Dehqan said at the time.
