Russia’s Chief of General Staff has told the press that bombing Iranian territory in order to make the country give up its nuclear program was inadmissible.

General Nikolay Makarov said at a press conference on Monday that possible bombings of Iran by the United States or Israel were an “extreme option that no one had the right to allow”. “As of the possible bombings, I doubt that they could really take place, though I think that there are such plans,” Makarov said.

The general also added that Iran will get Russian anti-aircraft systems S-300 only after the question is “solved on a state level”.
