Russia's arms deal with Syria, in which it sold Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime anti-ship missiles, warships and S-300 anti aircraft missiles, is "a transparent arms sale that has nothing to do with the conflict in Syria," Russian ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday on Christiane Amanpour's show on CNN.

Vitaly insisted the weapons his country sold Damascus were meant "for regional stability" and to prevent foreign military intervention in the Syrian conflict.
