MOSCOW, October 5 (Itar-Tass) - The issue around S-300 cannot be an obstacle in developing relations between the Russian Federation and Iran, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Moscow Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi told reporters on Saturday.
“I do not consider this issue at a level, which may be an obstacle for development of our relations,” the diplomat said, adding Moscow and Tehran had not been negotiating as yet supplies of Antei-2500.
“We have touched upon the topic, but no serious negotiations have been held,” he said.
Earlier, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin stressed supplies of Russian armoury to Iran might be discussed only in the framework of international limitations and only if the Iranian side refused from claims against Russia. Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi said Russia and Iran did not negotiate supplies of certain rocket armoury. “We have been negotiating our claim to the International Court of Arbitration about Russia’s refusal to supply S-300 rocket complexes to us.”
