IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, April 5, IRNA -- Head of Russian Foreign Ministry's Administration for Security and Disarmament Mikhail Oliyanov underlined that there are no obstacles hindering the sale of Sukhoi-30 fighter jets and T-90 tanks to Iran.

'The UN Security Council's Resolution 2231 has not banned sale of these military equipment to Iran,' Oliyanov said on Tuesday.

'We are of the opinion that the possible sale of Sukhoi-30 fighter jets and T-90 tanks of Russia to Iran have not been prohibited in Resolution 2231 and this resolution has permitted Iran to purchase such military hardware,' he added.

Oliyanov reiterated that the UN Security Council has not asked for permission for sale of Sukhoi-30 to Iran.

The Sukhoi Su-30 is a twin-engine, two-seat supermaneuverable fighter aircraft developed by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Corporation.

It is a multirole fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.
