ImageMOSCOW (AFP) — Russia may shelve the delivery of its advanced S-300 air defence missile system to Iran, the Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday, amid mounting tensions between Tehran and the West.

"Such a possibility is not excluded. The question must be decided at a political level, especially as the contract was worked out on a purely commercial basis," the unnamed source told the news agency.

The source said that the contract was signed in 2005 but the delivery had still not taken place.

Delivery of the missiles would likely anger the United States, which fears Tehran is seeking an atomic bomb and has never ruled out an air attack on its nuclear facilities.
