Last Updated: Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 11:42

Tehran: Iranian Defence Minister Brig Gen Ahmad Vahidi has said Iran plans to develop a missile defence system that is similar to Russia`s S-300 system.

Asked if Iran has plans to produce an S-300 defence system, Vahidi said on Wednesday: "We don`t need to produce the S-300 system, but we have plans on the agenda to produce similar weapons."

He said Iran has already developed a medium-range air defence system. "All parts of the system have been domestically produced," he added.
"The system has three radars and a domestically-produced missile that has high agility and a range of more than 40 km," Iranian state-run Press TV quoted Vahidi as saying.
