Iran denies supplying arms to Moscow for use against Kyiv

Kyiv and its Western allies accuse Moscow of using Iranian-made drones in attacks on Ukraine in recent weeks. The subject is expected to be discussed Monday at a meeting of European Union (EU) foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian denied the charges and said his country had "not provided and will not provide any weapons for use in the war in Ukraine", according to a statement from his ministry.

On Monday, Ukrainian President Zelensky said dozens of attacks he said using Iranian missiles and drones had targeted Ukraine's energy infrastructure.

"We believe that the delivery of arms to each side will prolong the war," the Iranian minister said in a phone conversation Friday with his Portuguese counterpart Joao Gomes Cravinho, according to the statement.

EU and US together with many countries already imposed several packages of sanctions against Russia since the beginning of the war.
