White House: Iran preparing to supply Russia with drones

U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on Monday that the country believes Iran is prepared to give Russia up to several hundred drones, some of which are armed.

Sullivan added that according to information the US has, Iran is getting ready to teach Russian soldiers how to use these drones.

Asked about Sullivan’s statement, an Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson neither confirmed nor denied it, according to Iranian state media.

“The history of cooperation between Iran and Russia in the field of some modern technologies dates back to before the war in Ukraine,” Nasser Kanaani was cited as saying by semi-official Mehr news agency.

“There has been no particular development in this regard recently.”
