Russia will supply Iran with the S-300 complexes this year, the number of systems is specified in the previously signed contract, a top official in the Russian Foreign Ministry told RIA Novosti.
As a source in the Defense Ministry of Iran reported previously to the Sputnik agency, Tehran could receive from Russia four divisions of the modernized S-300s instead of three, as it was specified in the old contract.
In 2007, Russia and Iran signed a contract for the supply of the S-300 systems. After the UN Security Council adopted the resolution 1929, which provided for imposition of sanctions against Iran, execution of the contract was suspended. In response, Iran submitted a claim against the Russian Federation to the international arbitration court. The parties are negotiating on withdrawal of this lawsuit.
