TEHERAN, July 20 /TASS/. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigade General Hossein Dehghan has confirmed the delivery of S-300 air defense missile systems from Russia, Iran’s Tasnim News Agency reported referring to a source in the Iranian parliament.
Dehghan confirmed the delivery of the Russian anti-aircraft missile systems at a meeting of the parliamentary Committee for National Defense and Foreign Affairs on Wednesday. He said that some of them had been deployed to their permanent locations.
Tasnim reported on July 18 that Iran had received the first batch of missiles for Russian-made S-300 systems.
In April 2016, it was reported that Russia had started delivering S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Iran. Some elements of those systems, in particular, radars, were shown at a military parade in Tehran on April 17.
The contract for delivery of Russian-made S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran was signed in 2007 but the UN Security Council Resolution No. 1929 adopted on June 9, 2010 banned the transfer of modern weapons to Iran, including missiles and their systems.
In April 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the ban on the delivery of S-300 systems to Iran. In November, a new contract to supply S-300 systems to Iran came into force.
Sergei Chemezov, CEO of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec, said that Russia would complete the delivery of all S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran before the end of the year.
