MOSCOW - Russian state arms producer Almaz Antei said on Tuesday it would supply Iran with the advanced S-300 missile defence system once a commercial agreement is reached.

It said the Russian authorities had removed all restrictions on deliveries. Moscow scrapped a deal to sell S-300 systems to Iran in 2010 under pressure from the West but President Vladimir Putin signed a decree in April ending the self-imposed ban.
