Anatoly Isaikin, the Director of Rosoboronexport, the state arms trader, said his company will continue to do business with Syria where a civil war has been raging for almost two years.

­Isaikin rejected Western criticism of Russian arms sales to the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, saying that his company has only delivered defensive weapons.

He also emphasized that such trade is not prohibited by the United Nations.

“We are continuing to carry out our obligations under contracts for supplies of military hardware. But this hardware is not offensive,” Isaikin said.
