Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that Tehran and Moscow will continue their military cooperation, local Tehran Times daily reported on Wednesday.

Mehmanparast made the remarks during a press briefing on Tuesday in reply to a question about reports saying that Russia has agreed to provide Iran with electronic warfare in return for the cancellation of the contract for delivery of the S-300 missile system to Iran, said the report.

The Iranian spokesman did not elaborate on the details of the deal but he said if any agreement is made, it will be announced.

“Tehran and Moscow has a good relation, and we are continuing our military cooperation,” Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

According to the report, Konstantin Biryulin, deputy director of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation, said on Oct. 25 that Russia has delivered to Iran a consignment of mobile radar radiation detectors and hopes to agree on a number of similar deals.

Iran and Russia signed a contract for the S-300 system in 2007. In September 2010 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree banning shipments to Iran of the weapons and equipment listed in the UN resolution.
