Putin Lifts Ban on S-300 Missile Defense System to Iran

The Kremlin said on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Monday lifting a ban on the delivery of S-300 anti-missile rocket systems to Iran, says Reuters News Agency.

Russia said that it cancelled a contract to deliver the missile system to Iran in 2010, under pressure from the West following UN sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear weapons program.

However, it said, now that six world powers and Tehran have reached an interim deal on curbing Iran’s nuclear work, it is lifting the ban.
