The volume of deals between Russia and Iran may grow by $3-4 bln within 3 years, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Monday.

"3-4 billion dollars," he said when answering the question on potential growth of transactions volume between the 2 countries. According to Rogozin, currently aerospace projects have the highest degree of readiness.

"So far aerospace projects have the highest degree of readiness, most likely Superjet leasing issue as well as space vehicles orders from Russia," Rogozin said. "In December a group of specialists will be sent to Iran’s all leading industrial enterprises for examining technological level and after that, closer to New Year, it will become clear how industrial cooperation with Tehran will unfold. Now I’m not speaking about traditional sectors, such as energy, including nuclear energy," Deputy PM said.
