, Comments 0 comments

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told President Nicolas Sarkozy on Friday that Moscow will not sell air defence missiles to Iran in line with UN sanctions, a French official said.

Putin told the French leader that Moscow's decision to support a new round of sanctions against Tehran would have a "very heavy cost", the official, who asked not to be named, told reporters.

"The Iranians are very unhappy and will impose penalties for breaking the contract," the official quoted Putin as saying.
