The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs advised the Ukrainian party to stay realistic and instead of publishing alleged false accusations against Tehran, seriously consider a constructive proposal to hold a bilateral expert-technical meeting once Kyiv may provide evidence.
Kanani also reiterated that Iran adheres to active neutrality and makes efforts to seek a peaceful solution to the crisis in Ukraine. He denied the supply of any military machinery and equipment used in the Russian war against Ukraine.
At the end of October, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, suggested setting a joint research group of Iranian and Ukrainian military experts to investigate allegations of the use of Iranian drones in the war against Ukraine.
Russia has recently been massively using kamikaze drones to attack Ukraine, namely Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones. Russian forces use them under the title “Geran”. Tehran has repeatedly denied the supply of drones to Russia. The White House considers Iran’s denials false.
