Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi to Russia: OK, now give us the S-300 missile system

BUSHEHR, Iran, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) — Iranian lawmaker Alaeddin Boroujerdi hailed Russia’s move on Bushehr nuclear plant fuelling and expressed hope Russia’s next step would be the delivery of S-300 missile system to Iran, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported on Saturday.

Iran struck a deal with Russia in 2007 to buy the S-300 systems, but Russia delayed the delivery of the anti-aircraft missiles.

“The U.S. also pressed its European allies to take the same measures (of sanctioning) against Iran. They also put Russia under pressure to prevent loading Bushehr nuclear plant,” Boroujerdi told ISNA.

Russia’s move ensured Iranians that it abides by its commitments and public opinion in Iran, he said, adding that ” Russia (should) implement its obligations on S-300 missile system as well.”
