Russia rejected an Iranian request to buy S 400 missile defense systems

Russia has rejected an Iranian request to buy S-400 missile defense systems,concerned that the sale would stoke more tension in the Middle East. 
The request was rebuffed by President Vladimir Putinon condition of anonymity because they’re not authorized to discuss the matter. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited Moscow May 7. Russia’s Foreign Ministry didn’t reply to a request for comment, and Iranian officials couldn’t be reached for a response.

US Sanctions:
The US recently imposed more anti-Iranian sanctions and sent an aircraft carrier and bombers to the Gulf over what it described as a threat of attack from Iran on its forces and allies.
Russia’s reaction to Iran’s request reflects the delicate balance of power in the Persian Gulf, where a showdown is brewing between the Islamic Republic on one hand, and the U.S. and its Gulf Arab allies on the other. President Donald Trump agreed to send more U.S. troops to the region after the U.S. blamed Iran for attacks on Saudi oil installations as well as four ships.
