According to the Iranian media, nothing stands in the way of an ambitious plane deal between Moscow and Tehran. Iran may officially receive Russian warplanes after a ban on the sale of conventional arms to Iran was lifted in October 2020.

Iran’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations has signed a contract for the sale of fighter jets from Russia. Like the Iranian agency IRNA on Friday reported, they are Su-35 fighters. The media quoted an Iranian UN official as saying:

“The Su-35 fighters have Iran’s technical approval.”

The Middle East country’s UN mission said the deal was made possible after the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 ban on the sale of conventional arms to Iran was lifted. However, further details about the agreement, such as the number of fighter jets to be delivered or the delivery time, were not disclosed. The Iranian UN representation referred to the reasons for secrecy.

Before had Shahriar Heydari, member of Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said in mid-January that Iran would be getting Russian Su-35 fighters shortly after March 21. The Agency Tasnim speculated at the time about 24 combat aircraft.

At the end of February, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken threw up in an interview for the television network CBS Moscow proposes to provide Tehran with Russian warplanes in exchange for Iranian drones. He gave no evidence. Russia and Iran have denied such allegations. The Iranian Foreign Ministry admitted to supplying drones to Russia, but these happened a few months before the Ukraine war broke out.

Loud IRNA The history of Iranian purchases of fighter jets dates back to 1988. After the Iran-Iraq war ended, Tehran asked several states to sell it fighter planes. Russia has agreed. According to the agency Tasnim Iran hasn’t bought a new fighter jet in decades. Most recently, there were a few Russian MiG-29 fighter jets in the 1990s.
