    Member of Iran's Security Council Hossein Sobhani said that Russia has fulfilled its commitments on the delivery of S-300 air defense systems and Iran's lawsuit will be withdrawn.

    TEHRAN (Sputnik) Russia has fulfilled its commitments on the delivery of S-300 air defense systems and Iran's lawsuit will be withdrawn after the Islamic Republic has implemented the necessary procedures in the international court, member of Iran's Security Council Hossein Sobhani told Sputnik on Monday.

    "We can say that the case is at the stage of suspension, its withdrawal requires certain measures that Iran needs to take in regard to the international court, but the main part of the lawsuit is fully settled after Iran received the first batch of the air defense systems," Sobhani said.

    Russia and Iran initially signed an S-300 delivery deal in 2007, but its implementation was halted by Moscow due to UN Security Council sanctions against Tehran. In response, Iran filed a lawsuit against Russia.
