Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi said here on Wednesday that the S-300 air defense system is not subject to Security Council resolution, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Speaking in a press conference, Araqchi reiterated that the weapons that their sales to Iran would be subject to the restrictions are seven items and this would not include S-300.

'Purchasing the S-300 air defense system is out of the jurisdiction of the Security Council's recent resolution,' he added.

Touching upon the wave of European officials' trips to Iran, he said European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius are set to visit Iran next week.

He reiterated that the Vienna agreement has paved the way for economic cooperation of Iran with several countries that were deprived of fostering ties with Islamic Republic due to imposed sanctions.

Pointing to the continuation of trilateral relations between Iran, Russia and China, he stressed that Iran enjoys cordial, positive and constructive ties with Russia and China.
