These weapons are likely to deployed to safeguard Iranian nuclear facilities at Isfahan, Bushehr, Tehran and eastern Iran, Russia's ITAR-Tass news agency reported.

In New York, spokesman for the U.S. mission to the United Nations, Richard Grenell, called the development ``troublesome, given that Iran is the leading state sponsor of terror in the world.''
