Continuing more extracts from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter.


"Iran mulls foreign air defense aid for domestic security. Russian S-400s with teams?"

19 June.

"Amid high tension with the US, Tehran is looking at a possible invitation to a foreign power to boost its domestic security against aerial attack.  'We currently face demonstrative threats. Nevertheless, when it comes to air defense of or country, we consider using foreign potential in addition to our domestic capacities,' said Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Chairman Ali Shamkhani on Wednesday, June 19 when he was asked if Iran might purchase Russian S-400s."

"The official’s words indicate that Tehran is in advanced talks with Moscow on the deployment to Iran of Russian S-400 air defense missiles. They would be flown in with Russian teams since Iran lacks the know how for operating these advanced systems . . . although Moscow may think twice before getting entangled in a potential US-Iranian war situation."

Mr. Putin indeed think twice. And three times. And four times. Etc.
