Relations between Moscow and Tehran become a bargaining chip used anti-Russian mass media for improper purposes. About the Agency RIA Novosti on Tuesday, August 15, said a source in the Russian foreign Ministry, commenting on the publication about the Iranian shipment to Russia of offensive weapons to repair.

“The problem with the perception of what is happening in our relations with Iran are not from the Russian side, of course, because we act and will always act strictly in accordance with their international obligations”, — explained in Department.

Earlier, the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, citing unnamed sources in Western intelligence agencies have published information according to which Iran in violation of UN security Council resolutions allegedly ferried for maintenance to Russia via Syria, some components of heavy offensive weapons.

The first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security, Senator Franz Klintsevich announced that Russia at the time, trained professionals in Iran, is able to serve the Russian military equipment. “This training was provided by the contracts for the supply of equipment,” he said.

In turn, Director of the Center for analysis of world arms trade (TSAMTO) Igor Korotchenko said that the publication Welt am Sonntag is not true. “It’s a fake information, designed to portray Russia and Iran violators of the well-known resolutions of the UN Security Council. In the military-technical contacts with Tehran, Moscow strictly adheres to the resolutions,” he said.
