Tehran, YJC. Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu met his Iranian counterpart Hossein Dehqan on Tuesday in Tehran.

In this meeting, the Iranian and Russian sides agreed to settle the issue of S300 missile systems which has been going on for some time.

Moscow has failed tomake good onan $800 million contract forthe delivery offive S-300 air-defense systems to Iran.

The Iranian minister speaking to his Russian counterpart, urged the two countries to boost their mutual cooperation as the two share views on regional and international affairs.

Dehqan asserted that Iran will continue to fight terrorism as he strongly condemned a recent Israeli airstrike on Golan Heights which killed a number of top Hezbolalh members, including Jihad, son of late Imad Mughniyah, and an Iranian military official.

He said that the event follows Israel’s support of Takfiri terrorism as a way to disrupt regional peace.

The Iranian defense minister called for cooperation with Russia to counter US intervention with the region’s independent countries.

The Russian defense minister in turn asserted that his country welcomes relations with Iran as a way to strengthen regional security.

Shoigu further noted that by signing a prospective contract during his visit to Tehran, Iran and Russia will engage in more active military cooperation.
