Negotiations on delivery of a more modernized Russian air defense system than S-300 to Iran are close to a successful conclusion, a source in the Iranian Defense Ministry told Sputnik on Saturday.
On Tuesday, a source in the Iranian Defense Ministry told Sputnik that the recent comprehensive nuclear agreement between the six world powers and Iran could allow Tehran to gain access to a more advanced air defense system than S-300.
“Negotiations are almost finished, Iran may receive a more modernized system instead of S-300”, the source said.
He added that if the process of negotiations will be developing at the current pace, the air defense systems may be delivered by the year-end.
“If Iran gets the S-300 system or other modern system it will be possible to say that the sky over Iran is protected against any airstrike”, the source said.
