    Iran took delivery of the first set of S-300 Surface-to-air missile systems (NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble), according to Iranian and Russian officials.

    “We had already announced that despite several changes in the time of delivery, the deal is on its path of implementation and today I should announce that the first part of this equipment has arrived in Iran and delivery of other parts will continue,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Jaberi Ansari said, according to Mehr news agency.

    The weapons were purportedly shipped from Russia to Iran via the Caspian Sea, which both countries border.
