MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow expends its best efforts to perform a contract for deliveries of Russia's S-300 air defense systems to Iran, the director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said Monday.
"Everything depends on both parties. We do our best to fulfill the contract," Alexander Fomin told reporters.
At the same time, he denied reports about a contract for delivery of advanced S-400 air defense systems to India.
The $900-million Moscow-Tehran contract to deliver five Russian S-300 systems to Iran was signed in 2007. It was suspended after the imposition of the UN Security Council sanctions on Iran in mid-2010.
In 2015, Moscow annulled the S-300 delivery ban, after Iran and six world powers, including Russia, reached a framework nuclear deal to lift the anti-Tehran sanctions in exchange for guarantees of the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.
On April 27, Indian Minister of State Rao Inderjit Singh said that India and Russia had already signed a deal for the S-400s delivery.
