Tehran, IRNA -- Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hossein Amirabdollahian has emphasized that Tehran had delivered drones to Russia months prior to the Ukraine conflict.
The head of diplomatic apparatus of the Islamic Republic made the remarks on Saturday, noting that the hue and cry, which has been created by certain Western states, that claims Iran supplied Russia with drones and missiles to be used for the Ukraine war is in terms of missiles completely false and in terms of drones the delivery happened months before the conflict.
Amirabdollahian also said that he has reached agreement with his Ukrainian counterpart; so, Kyiv will provide Tehran with all documents on Russia's usage of Iranian drones in the war.
So, we had an appointment in a European country two weeks ago, but unfortunately the Ukrainian delegation did not come to provide the documents in a last-minute decision.
Some European states have started a campaign against the Islamic Republic of Iran in recent weeks, accusing Tehran of supplying Moscow with drones and missiles to be used for the Ukraine war, but the Iranian authorities have time and again underscored that such allegations are baseless and Iran calls on both sides of the conflict to stop war and start negotiations to find peaceful way out of the hostility.
