22 April 2010 6:01

Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi says Iran plans to produce missile defense systems similar to Russia’s S-300 system.

Asked if Iran has plans to produce an S-300 defense system, Vahidi said on Wednesday, “We don’t need to produce the S-300 system, but we have plans on the agenda to produce similar weapons.”

He also stated that Iran has developed a medium-range air defense system.

“All parts of the system have been domestically produced,” the defense minister added.

Vahidi explained that the defense system has “three radars and a domestically produced missile that has high agility and a range of more than 40 kilometers.”

Meanwhile, on Wednesday Iran’s ambassador to Russia, Seyyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi, told the Mehr news agency, “Russian officials are committed to their [S-300] deal with Iran.”
