BAKU, August 8. /TASS/. Russia has fulfilled 50% of its liabilities under the contract for supplies of S-300 systems to Iran, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Monday.
When asked how many S-300 systems have already been supplied to Iran, Rogozin said, "Half."
The contract on supplies of S-300 missile defense systems was signed with Iran in 2007. However its implementation was suspended after the United Nations Security Council passed on June 9, 2010 resolution 1929 which banned transfer of any state-of-the-art weapons, including missile and missile systems, to Teheran. In April 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted the ban on supplies of S-300 systems to Iran and the contract was resumed in November 2015. The contract will be implemented by the yearend, according to Sergei Chemezon, CEO of Russia’s state corporation Rostec.
