“Certainly, we have seen the messages about the deal. In the past, we have repeatedly expressed our disagreement with any sales of C-300 to Iran, and the Secretary of State (USA John Kerry) repeatedly raised this issue in personal conversations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. We will follow the development of events ",said at the Kirby briefing.
When asked whether this deal violates Iran’s restrictions on relations, Kirby found it difficult to answer.
The agency recalls that recently the Iranian authorities "demonstrated elements of the C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems received from the Russian Federation at a military parade in Tehran on the occasion of the celebration of the National Army Day."
