TEHRAN - The Iranian minister of defense has said Tehran sees no limit to military cooperation with Russia.

“The cooperation will focus on production and joint marketing,” Hossein Dehqan stated, the Eqtesadi news website reported Monday.

Commenting on the S-300 missiles, he said Russia has agreed to deliver the missiles before the end of 2015.

On Iran’s missile development programs, he said the country does not accept any limits on producing long-range missiles despite what world powers try to imply.

He also said Iran will continue supporting resistance movements such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad.

“We have often declared publically that we will not stop material or spiritual support for Hezbollah or any other resistance organizations that are fighting the U.S. and the Zionist regime,” he asserted.
