New York, Sept 30, IRNA -- Syria's Foreign Minister said deployment of S-300 air defense system in Syria is an important message from Moscow to Tel Aviv, and the system will play a major role against Israeli air raids.

At the end of his meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said in a special interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) at the United Nations that the air defense system undoubtedly plays an important role in protecting Syria from Israeli aggression. Hence, the missiles will greatly contribute to the security of the region.

He went on to say deploying S-300 missile system to Syria is a message from Moscow to the Zionist regime as Israel shot down the Russian aircraft and killed 15 Russian military officers on board.
