(Worthy News) - The Russian-Iranian military alliance continues to grow following the release of billions of dollars to Tehran under the recently implemented nuclear agreement, according to announcements made by both countries.
Iranian officials announced Monday that Iran would spend another $8 billion on the purchase of Russian-made arms. The sale comes as Moscow gears up to deliver to Iran an advanced missile air defense system as part of a deal that has been in the works for years.
