The Iranian Embassy in Moscow also announced on Friday that Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan plans to visit Russia to discuss military cooperation between the two countries and attend a security conference. “The Iranian minister will have a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu,” Russian news agency TASS quoted sources from the embassy as saying. Dehqan will also hold talks on the possible purchase of Russian-made Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets and T-90 tanks during his visit to Moscow scheduled for April 26, the embassy said. The 2016 Moscow Conference on International Security, which will be held on April 27-29, is expected to focus on fighting terrorism in the region and across the world, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.
