    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that it is too early to name the exact delivery date for Russian S-300 air defense systems to Iran.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) It is too early to name the exact delivery date for Russian S-300 air defense systems to Iran, as certain payment issues remain between the sides, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    "There are no deadlines yet, because there is a problem related to payment and so on. The deal has not been paid properly, so it is premature to speak of specific dates," Peskov told reporters.
