TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Tehran and Moscow are expected to sign an agreement on Wednesday on delivery of Sukhoi Superjet 100 passenger planes, a source in Iranian delegation at Moscow MAKS-2015 air show said.
"The agreement on Sukhoi Superjet 100 deliveries could be signed here at the MAKS tomorrow if the negotiations are successful," Ali Vatani, the Iranian official, told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
Earlier on Tuesday, Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Affairs Sorena Sattari said in an interview with Sputnik in Moscow that Tehran is keen on acquiring Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.
