Tehran, Dec 9, IRNA – Brig. Gen. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, the commander of Iran's Army Ground Force, says that Iran has plans to buy Russia-developed T-90 tanks and Iranian military experts would be sent to Russia to sign the contracts with Moscow.
'Our ties with Russia in the field of equipment supply are established, and we have on our agenda the purchase of T-90 tanks,' Brig. Gen. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said, as quoted by the Tasnim News Agency.
Russia and Iran work together in different spheres, including trade, energy, military and technical cooperation. On November 25, Russian presidential aide on military-technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin said that Iran was interested in the entire range of Russian arms, according to sputniknews.com.
Military cooperation with Tehran became possible again after Iran reached an agreement on its nuclear program with the P5+1 group of international mediators on July 14. Iran agreed to ensure the peaceful nature of its nuclear program in exchange for easing of the sanctions imposed against the country.
