Iran Inks Deal with Russia to Buy Several Sukhoi-100 Jets: Report

Representatives of Iran’s defence ministry have signed a contract with Russia for purchase of several Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) passenger planes, according to media reports.

The contract was signed at a meeting between representatives of Russian and Iranian defense authorities at the MAKS air show in the Moscow Region’s city of Zhukovsky.

Russia signed contracts worth a total of U.S. $6.7 billion at the air show, the Sputnik reported.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak, co-chairman of the Russian–Iranian intergovernmental commission, had earlier in April said that the countries have an agreement on supplies of 12 SSJ100 planes and could sign a contract on supplies of another 30 jets in the future.
