A controversial deal for Russia to supply Iran with S-300 air defence missiles is barred by UN sanctions leveled against Tehran over its nuclear programme this week, a Kremlin source said Friday.

"S-300 supplies to Iran fall under UN sanctions," the source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of the Russia and China-led Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Uzbekistan.
