Iran says it won’t remain ‘indifferent’ if Russian use of its drones is proven

Iran’s foreign minister says Tehran will not remain “indifferent” if it becomes evident Russia is using Iranian-made drones in Ukraine.

“During the war in Ukraine… we are against arming both Russia and Ukraine,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says in video remarks published by local media.

“We have not supplied Russia with any weapons or drones for use in the war against Ukraine,” he continues, reiterating previous denials while acknowledging that the two countries have defense cooperation.

Iran’s top diplomat reaffirms his country’s willingness to hold direct talks with Ukraine on the matter, and says that he conveyed this to European foreign policy chief Josep Borrell in the past days.

“I stressed to Mr. Borrell that if… it becomes clear to us that Russia has used Iranian drones in the war against Ukraine, we will definitely not be indifferent about this issue.”
