Iran: February 23, 2000


The Russian newspaper KOMERSANT says that Moscow no longer regards the 1995 agreement to stop providing military aid and equipment to Iran as valid. This agreement was hailed as a great diplomatic success when then-Prime Minister Chernomyrdin signed it with Vice President Gore. The agreement was never really observed as it included a provision that Russia could finish supplying anything under a previous contract, and the extent of those "previous" contracts was never listed and has continually expanded. --Stephen V Cole
