Iraq set to buy Russian S-400 air defence systems

The Iraqi government has decided to buy Russian S-400 air defence systems, but the exact date of the purchase is yet to be defined, Iraqi Ambassador to Russia Haidar Hadi said on Wednesday, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

"As for S-400, there is no road map that would set exact dates and define how we should move toward this [purchasing S-400]. The Iraqi government has made a decision, it wants to buy these missiles", Hadi told journalists at a press conference held at the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.
