    Moscow is close to inking an agreement that would expedite the transfer of several of its S-300 missile units to Iran, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said Tuesday, Iran’s state-media reported. The air-defense batteries will help extensively to secure Iran’s military and nuclear sites against airstrikes.

    Russia has had the S-300s ready for Iran since 2010, but had agreed to not sell the regime the sophisticated technology following international pressure.

    But Russia has reneged on its promise, and the new missile shipment will be delivered shortly after the two sides finalize the deal, which is expected to happen no later than next week, Iran’s state-run ISNA news agency reports Dehghan as saying.
