Iran refuses Russia’s use of Hamadan air base


Iran has terminated the agreement with Russia on the use of Iranian air base.

It was noted that the Russian Air Force was able to use the base for only a week.

A source in the Russian military command said that there appeared “some misunderstanding” between the parties: Russian military wanted to use the air base not only as an airfield, but also as a full-fledged military facility with the deployment of respective arsenals, but the Iranian side does not agree with this option.

As it was reported earlier, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan criticized the Russian military commanders for disclosing the information on the use of Iranian airfield by Russian Air Force.

Russia thought of expanding of the scope of air operations in Syria. U.S. suspected the Kremlin in violation of UN Security Council ban.
