Russia has sent a set of mobile radar jammers to Iran and is negotiating future deliveries that Moscow believes do not contravene the current UN sanction regime on the Islamic state, an official said Tuesday.
The Avtobaza truck-mounted jammers are a part of a broader line of arms that Russia hopes to sell Iran despite concerns over Tehran’s nuclear programme, the deputy head of the military and technical cooperation agency said.
“This is a defensive system,” the agency’s deputy director Konstantin Biryulin was quoted as saying by the state RIA Novosti news agency.
