Russia and Iran are holding talks over Russia supplying the Islamic republic with Sukhoi Superjet passenger planes, Russia's Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said on Wednesday.

“Such talks are being held,” Sokolov told reporters. “And not only Superjets, but also other technology is being met with certain interest from our Iranian comrades.”

The Sukhoi Superjet is the first new airliner Russia has developed since the fall of the Soviet Union.

It seems pretty clear that Russia is looking to make a comeback, and is flexing its muscle by dealing with Iran. The comment about other technology being of interest to Iran, and the use of the term comrades seems designed to get tongues wagging, and minds wondering about what else is going on, as well as exactly how allied the two nations are.
