Iran has received a Russian air defense missile system, the Iranian defense minister said Wednesday. Iran's announcement came as it launched three days of military maneuvers - its first since the UN Security Council imposed sanctions against it in late December. "We have had constructive defense transactions with Russia and we purchased Tor M-1 missiles that were recently delivered to us," the official Web site of Iranian state television quoted Minister of Defense Mostafa Mohammad Najjar as saying.
