Iran to develop missile defence system
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.
