Russia did not approve the alleged sale of its Pantsyr-S1 mobile air defense system from Syria to Iran, the first deputy prime minister said Wednesday.
MOSCOW, May 23 (RIA Novosti) - Russia did not approve the alleged sale of its Pantsyr-S1 mobile air defense system from Syria to Iran, the first deputy prime minister said Wednesday.

"We have received no requests from Syria for supplies to Iran, not a single bullet," Sergei Ivanov said at a news conference in Moscow.

Media earlier reported that Damascus had agreed to sell some of the Pantsyr short-range air defense missile-gun systems it is buying from Russia to Tehran.

"Russia engages in military-technical cooperation with all states that strictly abide by international law... For any arms that Russia sells to its foreign partners, contracts are signed only after the receipt of a certificate from the end user. These weapons cannot then be re-exported and supplied to third countries without the permission of the seller, in this case the Russian Federation."
