NATO has warned the Islamic Republic that it should not provide Moscow with arms and ammunition in its war against Ukraine.
At a meeting of foreign ministers of the defense alliance’s members in Bucharest on Tuesday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Russia has asked Iran to provide it with weapons because it was “running low on ammunitions.”
“We are saying very clearly that no country should support Russia’s illegal war, and therefore, Iran and no other country should provide Russia with missiles, drones or anything else that can help them to continue this brutal war of aggression against Ukraine,” added Stoltenberg.
He further noted that Iran and no other country should provide Russia with “missiles, drones or anything else that can help them to continue this brutal war of aggression against Ukraine.”
Elsewhere in his remarks, Stoltenberg stated that Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion of Ukraine is failing in Ukraine.
Russia has been using Iranian drones in its air attacks against the Ukrainians. In October and November, it targeted Ukraine’s civilian energy infrastructure, plunging it into blackouts as the winter cold has begun across the country. Amid international outcry over the Islamic Republic’s supply of drones for the Russian invasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told a meeting of UN security council November 23, that the attacks are “an obvious crime against humanity” adding that Kyiv would put forward a resolution condemning “any forms of energy terror”.
