S-300 Deal No Threat to Arabs

S-300 Deal No Threat to Arabs

A Russian official said Persian Gulf Arab states have no reason to feel threatened by the deal to supply Iran with Russian-built S-300 missile systems.
"This is a defense equipment. And we are ready to offer this defense equipment to any country," Sergei Chemezov, the chief executive of Russian state-owned defense conglomerate Rostec, told Reuters in Dubai on Monday.
"So if [Persian] Gulf countries are not going to attack Iran ... why should they be threatened? Because this is defense equipment."
He said Saudi Arabia had approached his firm "several times" requesting that it not deliver the equipment.
"And we said that the S-300 is not capable to attack... to reach the neighboring countries."
Earlier in the day, Chemezov had said Russia and Iran have signed a contract for Moscow to supply Tehran with S-300 surface-to-air missile systems, according to the RIA news agency.
