Russia’s plans to sell S-300 missile Defense Systems to Iran have to wait for another five years following the final agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program.

As per the agreement, the UN arms embargo against Iran will remain for five years and US missile sanctions will be applicable for another eight years.

This means, Russia will be unable to sell it any conventional weapons including anti-missile systems, aircraft and tanks for the period the embargo is in force.
