TEHRAN, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- The Iranian defense minister said the country is in negotiations to buy the Tur-M1 missile system from Russia.

Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said Iranian and Russian officials discussed the sale during the fourth meeting of the Iran-Russia defense commission, Fars News Agency reported Wednesday.

"During the meeting, the Iranian side entered negotiations with the high-ranking Russian delegation in different areas, and the two sides reached agreements on a number of issues, including a discussion about the Tur-M1 missile system," Najjar said.

The official said earlier Wednesday Iran and Russia signed a contract Tuesday for the purchase of another advanced missile system, the S-300. The contract dealt with the purchase of the system from Russia and its deployment in Iran.
