Xu Lumin, reporter for Chinese media network Global Network Report, raises questions about possible lifting of embargo against Iran. If no new restrictive measures against Tehran are taken by the United Nations, then in the coming weeks an embargo on the supply of arms and military equipment, as well as dual-use vehicles to Iran, may remain in the past.
Chinese observer examines the situation, in which Iran can order from Russia anti-aircraft missile systems S-400 "Triumph".
China and Turkey have already become the owners of such air defense systems., India is awaiting contract execution. A number of other countries are ready to purchase the S-400 from the Russian Federation. Earlier, the Islamic Republic of Iran was also named among the possible candidates..
From Xu Lumin's article:
The Russian S-400 air defense system will become a practical tool for Iran to, to shoot down American planes. Can the S-400 "Triumph", if necessary, shoot down the F-22, F-35 or B-2 Spirit? The likelihood of, Iran can shoot them down with these Russian air defense systems, will increase significantly, if the S-400 appear in service with Tehran.
Author, citing material in the American magazine The National Interest, notes, that previously Iran had virtually no opportunity to threaten American fighters and stealth bombers. Now, when Tehran has an S-300 air defense system, and the S-400 air defense system may appear, then the threat to American stealth aircraft is quite serious. And not only for American, after all, other geopolitical opponents of Iran also have the F-35, including Israel.
Author notes, that in the event of a threat from enemy aircraft, the Iranian side can use the latest air defense, if they are at her disposal.
