MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iran expects that a renewed contract on the delivery of Russian S-300 missile defense systems could be signed this or next week, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said Tuesday.

According to the minister, as cited by Iran’s IRNA news agency, the issue of S-300 deliveries is currently on the defense ministry’s agenda, and the necessary mechanisms to review and update the agreement are in place.

In April, Moscow lifted the ban on S-300 deliveries to Iran, shortly after the P5+1 group of international negotiators and the Islamic Republic reached a framework nuclear agreement. A final nuclear deal was reached in July.
