Iranian Foreign Ministry: Cooperation between Tehran and Moscow is not directed against Kyiv.

Defense cooperation between Moscow and Tehran is not directed against any third state, in particular against Kyiv, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kananni said during a press conference on Monday.

“Cooperation between Iran and Russia is based on common interests, defense cooperation between the two countries is not directed against any third country,” Kanaani said.

He once again stressed that Tehran is not a party to the Ukrainian conflict and does not participate in hostilities.

“The solution to this crisis is a political dialogue, which is necessary to establish peace and end the war. We have said many times that we did not provide either weapons or military assistance to any of the parties in this conflict,” the Iranian diplomat added.
