Russia says Iran sanctions do not bar missile deal

MOSCOW, June 10 (Reuters) - Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that new U.N. sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear programme do not oblige Moscow to scrap a controversial deal to deliver surface-to-air missiles to Iran.

Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko spoke after the Interfax news agency cited a Russian arms industry source as saying Russia would freeze its unfulfilled contract to sell S-300 missiles to Iran because of the sactions. (Reporting by Dmitry Solovyov; editing by Steve Gutterman)
