Russian FM says Moscow 'is completing' supplies of surface-to-air missiles to Syria

Russia is completing its delivery of surface-to-air missiles to Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday.

"Russia is not planning to sell -- Russia has sold a long time ago, and is completing supplies of the equipment -- which is anti-aircraft systems, according to the already signed contracts," Lavrov told reporters in Warsaw. He added that "this is not forbidden by any international laws, this is defensive weaponry."
