FEDERAL SERVICEFOR MILITARY-TECHNICAL COOPERATION(FSMTC of Russia)
Official comment by FSMTC of Russia.
Recently, mass media have often discussed deliveries of antiaircraft defense systems to Iran and further plans for cooperation between Russia and Iran in this area.
FSMTC of Russia confirms that the Russian Federation pursues and will further pursue military and technical cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran in strict conformity with the existing legislation and international commitments.
We cannot make comments on specific plans or commitments under existing agreements, as it would mean to become an unreliable partner, and enable potential competitors to take advantage of the situation.
