Netanyahu Asks Putin Not to Sell Iran S-300 Missile System


According to a report in this morning's (Thursday) Ma'ariv, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked Russian President Vladmir Putin to reject Iran's request of Russia to sell them the modern S-300 missile system. Per the report, the discussion originally took place about three weeks ago during preparations for Ariel Sharon's funeral.

After three years of a freeze brought about by  US and Israeli pressure, Teheran is renewing its efforts to acquire a new ground-to-air missile system from the Russians.
