Iran should have received the Russian S-300 missile defense system two years before the UN Security Council resolution 1929, which was passed in June 2010, the ISNA news agency quoted Iranian Minister of Defense Brig.-Gen. Ahmad Vahidi as saying on Monday.
"S-300 missile is not in contradiction with any international commitments of the two sides (Iran and Russia) and the issue is clearly emphasized in the deal, on the other hand the date of delivery of the missile system was two years before the adoption of the UN Security Council recent resolution against Iran," Vahidi told Azerbaijan's Trend News Agency.
