Head of the Center for Strategic Research of the Expediency Council Ali Akbar Velayati said Russia’s move to deliver the sophisticated S-300 air defense system demonstrated the close cooperation between the two countries.

“The delivery of the system displays serious cooperation between Iran and Russia,” Velayati said on Sunday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

“Iran-Russia collaboration is in its starting point,” he said.

“Our cooperation with Russia on Syria and the fight against terrorism and Takfiri [extremist] groups are very significant.”

He noted that a “bright future” is waiting for Iran-Russia ties, adding that the two countries’ cooperation will significantly help the establishment of peace and security in the region.

Iran on Sunday displayed some components of the Russian-made S-300 air defense missile system in a military parade in Tehran held to mark National Armed Forces Day.

The gear unveiled in the ceremony included two radar systems, a carrier and command vehicles as well as the crane for lifting its missiles.
