DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A senior Iranian official says new U.N. sanctions would not prevent Russia from delivering sophisticated air defense missiles to Iran as agreed under a 2007 contract.

Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says the contract for delivery of the powerful S-300 air defense missiles to Iran was concluded before the U.N. Security Council approved new sanctions earlier this month and therefore had “nothing to do” with the resolution.

Speaking to reporters in Damascus Thursday, Larijani said there were some “fluctuations” in Russia’s position toward Iran. He said U.N. sanctions would affect his country “very little.” The new sanctions concern Iran’s nuclear program.

Russia signed a deal to sell the missiles in 2007 but has delayed their delivery.
