Russia will continue to supply arms to Syria: export agency

Russia is still delivering weapons to Syria and will continue to do so despite the Middle East country's civil war, the head of the state arms exporter said on Wednesday.

"We are continuing to carry out our obligations on contracts for the delivery of military hardware," Rosoboronexport director Anatoly Isaikin told a news conference.

He said the deliveries included anti-missile air defence systems but nothing that could be used as attack weapons such as planes or helicopters. The exports did not contravene international law or U.N. Security Council resolutions, he said.
