Russia signed a deal to deliver five batteries of S-300PMU-1 air defense systems to Iran in 2007 but cancelled the sale in September 2010, claiming the systems, along with a number of other weapons, were covered by the fourth round of UN Security Council sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear program.

Mottaki will also answer a question on the measures taken by the Foreign Ministry regarding the latest UN sanctions resolution.

In addition, Moslehi will answer the question about the news that certain countries has paid one billion dollars to "leaders of sedition" during the last year's post-election unrest.

Moslehi confirmed the news on Tuesday, saying, "We have found clear clues about foreign support for the leaders of sedition."

He will also be asked about the case of those who have bought university degrees.

Sheikholeslami will also be asked why the unemployment rate has not been lowered to the level predicted in the Fourth Development Plan.

The four-year plan is part of the 20-Year Outlook Plan (2005-2025) which has been drawn up for the long-term sustainable growth.

Ghazanfari will also attend the Majlis session to answer a question on importation of goods to the country.
