“We have not yet decided whether the delivery of the C-300 will lead to action by the US authorities,” Kirby told reporters.
He recommended that media representatives on this issue contact the Ministry of Finance, which is directly involved in sanctions. According to him, there they should know "when such a decision can be made - after the completion of deliveries or else in time."
Usually, the US authorities do not announce in advance who the sanctions are preparing against and in what amount.
Earlier, commenting on the delivery of the first batch of Russian complexes to Iran, State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said: "We are against these supplies, but they do not violate the nuclear deal with Tehran or the existing sanctions."
