U.S. welcomes Russia’s ban on S-300 missile sales to Iran

The U.S. welcomes the Russian president’s decree to prohibit the delivery of S-300 air defense missile systems and other weapons to Iran, a White House official said.

National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer welcomed the move as a “faithful and robust implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1929” of June 9, 2010, which imposes an additional set of sanctions on the Islamic Republic over its controversial nuclear program.
