Russia to Sell Iran Missiles Despite UN Sanctions
Voice of America

A senior Russian lawmaker says proposed United Nations sanctions against Iran will not affect Russia's plans to sell Tehran surface-to-air missiles.

Mikhail Margelov - head of the  Federation Council's foreign affairs committee - says Russia's contract to sell Iran S-300 missiles was completed before the proposed sanctions.  

He also said Friday that Russia is a "responsible seller" of products on foreign markets and is "not interested in the militarization" of the Middle East.

On Tuesday, the United States announced it had won support from Russia and the other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council on a draft resolution that would impose a fourth round of sanctions on Iran because of concerns about Tehran's nuclear program.
