"Strengthens image": the expert about plans of Iraq for purchase of S-400 — Rambler News Service


Photo: Vitaly Nevar / TASS the Ambassador of Iraq in Russia Haidar Mansuri Hadi reported the decision made in Baghdad to buy the antiaircraft missile systems (AMS) S-400 from Russia. The diplomat made the corresponding statement during the press conference following the results of the eighth meeting of the intergovernmental Russian-Iraqi commission. The ambassador did not disclose details of the possible transaction. The Statement of the Iraqi diplomat you should not regard not the final decision as the final decision of Baghdad on purchase of the Russian ZRS S-400, the deputy director of the Center of the analysis of world trade by weapon Vladimir Shvarev told RNS. "It should be noted that at this stage it is only about the statement of the ambassador, and it is necessary to treat it very carefully. Yes, such interest in our weapon strengthens its image, but whether the bargain on S-400 will be concluded with Iraq, will show only time" — the expert emphasized. Shvarev reminded that Iraq bought different types of arms from Russia earlier. Surface-to-air missile missile systems, according to the expert, will allow Baghdad to provide defense of the airspace in the conditions of the instability caused by actions of the neighboring Iran and Pakistan. Recently Iraq tries to pursue policy, independent of Washington, and does not agree with the United States on the decisions in the defensive sphere, Shvarev added. According to him, to Americans it is unprofitable to forbid Baghdad to sign the contract with Moscow as otherwise they can lose the large buyer of the arms. Other buyers China became the First buyer of the Russian antiaircraft missile systems S-400 "Triumph" in September, 2014. Then Beijing signed the contract for purchase of four S-400 divisions with Moscow. The first calculations came to China in January of last year. A month later the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov reported that the state corporation was forced to destroy the systems which got to a storm made for Beijing and to start production of new complexes. In September, 2018 the USA imposed against China sanctions because of cooperation of Beijing with the Russian defense industry complex. The Chinese diplomats condemned actions of Washington, having accused the USA of violation of the principles of the international relations. In 2016 Russia gratuitously provided two S-400 systems of Belarus. Complexes transferred in acknowledgement of free granting lands in Baranovichi for installation of the Russian radar-tracking system of warning of missile attack. Customers of S-400 Contracts for acquisition of "Triumphs" were also signed with India and Turkey. The authorities of India approved the transaction at the end of 2015. The contract for delivery of S-400 was signed between Moscow and New Delhi on October 5, 2018. According to Economic Times, the amount of transaction was $5.43 billion, volume — five complexes. It is supposed that deliveries will come to the end in 2023. In December, 2017 Moscow concluded the bargain on S-400 with Ankara. The decision of the Turkish authorities was repeatedly criticized by the United States, demanding from Ankara to refuse deliveries of antiaircraft missile systems. President of Turkey P
