US: Russian fighter jet sale to Iran would violate arms ban

WASHINGTON-The U.S. says Russia’s proposed sale of fighter jets to Iran would violate a U.N. arms embargo extended as part of the nuclear accord with Tehran.

The State Department says transferring the Sukhoi-30 planes requires the U.N. Security Council’s approval. The planes are comparable to American F-15E fighter bombers.
