Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari has told Russian media that Iranian Defense Minister and Russian military officials are discussing the Tehran's purchase of two kinds of Russian-made military aircraft.

Sattari also stated that Iran is examining civilian passenger craft the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and Iranian airliners are likely to buy the plane dependent on the price offered by the Russians.
