MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. Russia has started sales of S-300 systems to Iran. The deal is to be completed by the end of the year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Monday.
In an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station, he said Russia has already sent the first batch of S-300 systems to Iran. "We are acting in strict compliance with the contract. They pay, we sell. We have already started. It is a supply in full sets," he said.
In his words, the number of missile systems and the number of missiles are stipulated by the contract. "I cannot say what exactly has been supplied but the supply was conducted by a logistics route elaborated by Russian and Iranian specialists," he said.
According to Rogozin, having received the first batch of these systems, Iran is abandoning its claim to Russia from the international court of arbitration. "They have agreed it with the Majlis, their parliament, so, the deal is being realized in full," he said.
