    Russia may supply nearly 100 Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional passenger jets to Iran within the next five years, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Thursday.

    “[The Iranians] are interested in the SSJ100 as a plane, which could become the main workhorse for their leading carriers,” Rogozin said in comments, carried by Rossiya-24 TV channel.

    “Yesterday evening, shortly before our departure, one of their flagship companies was negotiating with our United Aircraft Corporation on the delivery within the next five years of nearly a hundred Superjets, now ready to ship,” Rogozin added.

    He also said that he would be more specific about the planes’ delivery after a pertinent contract had been signed.
