I suspect Iran is on the verge to display its own version of RD-33.Iran is at today with an engine .... speaks for it's self.
Iranian jet propulsion technology today:

The mass production of the RD-33 is not far and will happen likely in a few months.
I was amazed to see Iran able to overhaul the SU-22 and SU-24's fleets. As they modified the internal structure that allows Iran to equip its SU-22 with the heaviest payload, it does mean they modified, hence they can duplicate the AL-21.
Notice I have a source that claims North Korea ally was capable to duplicate their Mig-29, including its RD-33. The actual number of North Korea's Mig-29 is over 100. It does mean logically Iran will duplicate its RD-33 next.
