Tehran, Moscow Begin Implementing S-300 Delivery Contract

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Iran says Tehran and Moscow have begun implementing a contract on Russia's delivery of S-300 missile defense systems to the Islamic Republic. 

"The first phase of the contract has completed the implementation course," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi-Ansari said.

"We hope that under the new plan, different phases of implementation will be completed to the end of the contract," he added.

Jaberi-Ansari chided Saudi Arabia for opting to follow a confrontational policy with Iran after a nuclear agreement signed with the Islamic Republic.

“Saudi Arabia is following a policy of moving against the clock which is an abortive policy and will not succeed,” he said.

"Saudi Arabia's stances, which are beyond its practical capacities, defy the international determination and implementation of agreements reached among various sides," the spokesman added. 

The official said Iran's top foreign policy priority is to bolster cooperation and connectivity with all its neighbors based on mutual interests.

“Iran will employ all capacities it its foreign policy to boost cooperation and interaction in political, economic, regional and international fields in order to resolve regional crises,” Jaberi-Ansari said.
