Russia has assured Iran it will honour a deal to supply the Islamic Republic with advanced S-300 air-defence missiles, Tehran's ambassador to Moscow said Friday. "We had heard reports that Russia would not deliver these systems to Iran, but we asked the Russian side and they denied it," Seyed Mahmoud Reza Sajadi told reporters in Moscow.
"The delivery deadline has already passed, but the Russian side has cited technical problems which it is working to fix," he added. "We feel that this question will be resolved in the space of one to two months."
The envoy's comments came after Iranian officials had accused Moscow of violating its contract and succumbing to growing pressure from the United States and Israel to halt delivery of the missile systems.
Russia, Iran's closest ally among major world powers, has never officially confirmed the S-300 contract but has reserved the right to sell arms to Iran as long as they are defensive in nature.
I thought 0bama was going to sit down and talk with them...
It looks like the Russians gave Obama the middle digit.
Just make sure that the first missile will hit the White House. And all Liberals, Socialists and Dems should be allowed to immediately apologize and surrender to Iran/Russia Axis of Evil. Their Lameduck President ... Mr. Apology of the Universe ... Barry Soetero. ... may be taken as “prisoner of War”.
As for the other half of America that consists of Libertarian/Republican Conservatives ... we will die fighting for FREEDOM just like what our Founding Fathers did in the past.
