Russian media with reference to official sources in the Russian Embassy in Tehran reported that on 21 February with the visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran there has arrived the Minister of defence of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu.
According to sources, the Russian politician will hold talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian defense Minister General Hossein Dekhana, as well as a number of senior officials.
Recall: last week Dehgan visited Moscow with two-day working visit. Besides Shoigu, he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to media reports, the talks in Moscow were discussed supplying Iran with weapons and the situation in Syria.
Ahead of the visit of the Iranian Minister in Russia, he said that Iran intends to buy Russian arms, in particular, T-90 tanks and su-30. The total value of the contracts is estimated at eight billion dollars.
Unresolved remains the question of deliveries to Iran antiaircraft rocket complex With-300. Despite the fact that the media repeatedly reported that Tehran will get SAM «in the coming days,» this, apparently, has not happened yet.
