Missiles to Syria a deterrence against intervention: Russia

Deliveries of sophisticated Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to the Syrian regime are a "stabilising factor" aimed at deterring any foreign intervention in the war-torn country, Moscow said Tuesday.

"We consider these supplies a stabilising factor and believe such steps will deter some hotheads from considering scenarios that would turn the conflict international with the involvement of outside forces," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters.

He added that the delivery of the S-300 systems to Syria was related to a contract signed several years ago.
