TEHRAN, October 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Air Force Commander Viktor Bondarev, who has arrived in Tehran with the Defence Ministry's delegation at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Hassan Shahsafi, has discussed bilateral military technical cooperation. The senior military officials reached principle agreements on cooperation in training of military pilots, technical maintenance of missile and radar air defence systems and expert experience exchanges, Iranian news agencies reported on Monday.
The Russian Embassy in Iran said Bondarev would have talks with the commander of the aerospace force, the Corps of the Islamic Revolution Guards, Amir Ali Hajizadeh. He will also inspect repair hangars for MiG-29, Boeing-707 and C-130 aircraft and a training base.
Aside from talks in Tehran, the Russian delegation is planned to visit the air defence bases in Mehrabad and Isfahan and Shahid Sattari Aviation University.
Delivery of S-300 air defence systems to Iran was not discussed. Commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya air defence base Farzad Esmayeeli, who participated in the meeting, noted the issue was under the defence ministers' jurisdiction.
