Tehran (ISNA) - Tehran intends to develop the military-technical cooperation with Moscow, including those areas that require the consent of the UN Security Council, the Iranian ambassador to the Russian Federation, Mehdi Sanai said.

"For example, there are no restrictions on the sale of various types of weapons to Iran in the agreement on the nuclear program. It says that you must obtain permission,'' RIA Novosti cites his interview to the Arguments and Facts newspaper.

On March 1, representatives of Russia's Federation Council's Committee on Defense and Security will start their six-day visit to Iran to discuss the provision of weaponry to Tehran as well as the situation in Syria, the Committee's chairman Viktor Ozerov told.
