Russia will offer Iran a new supply of S-300 missiles and assistance in the construction of an additional nuclear reactor in Bushehr, Russian paper Kommersant reported Wednesday.

The proposal comes three years after a previous agreement under which Russia was expected to transfer five S-300 batteries to Iran was canceled. A week and a half ago Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed in an interview for AP that Moscow supplied Syria with components for the system, but that the shipment was not completed.

According to a source within the Kremlin, Putin decided to grant an Iranian request to supply the Islamic Republic with the high-end S-300 air defense system with a deal estimated at $800 million which will also include coordinating the construction of an additional nuclear reactor in Bushehr.

According to the report, Putin has instructed his staff to prepare the agreements so as to discuss them with Iranian President Hassan Rohani during the two leaders’ scheduled meeting on Friday. The source believes that Teheran will accept the renewed Russian proposal.
