Tehran criticizes the United States for its unconditional support for Israel and spreads lies about Iran’s ties with Russia
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman slams US for maintaining ‘unconditional’ support for ‘world’s deadliest’ regime, Israel, and spreading lies about what it calls Tehran’s support for the Russian war in Ukraine.
“[US] National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan accompanied [President Joe] Biden in Tel Aviv to reinforce America’s commitment to unconditionally support the deadliest child-killing regime in the world,” Nasser Kan’ani said in a post on his Twitter account on Thursday.
Kan’ani added that at the start of Sullivan’s trip to Israel, he accused Iran of supporting the “massacre” of the Ukrainian people, referring to the US official’s assertion of Iran’s plan to provide Russia drones amid war on Ukraine/
“Lying is a common practice among American statesmen to subvert reality for malicious purposes,” he said.
The US national security adviser claimed on Monday that Washington had received “information” indicating that Iran was preparing to supply Russia with “up to several hundred drones (unmanned aerial vehicles), including drones capable of weapons in an expedited timeframe”.
Kan’ani reacted to this assertion on Tuesday, saying that cooperation between Iran and Russia in the field of certain modern technologies has nothing to do with Ukraine and dates back, in fact, to before the start of the Russian war.
In an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica on Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian expressed his country’s opposition to the war between Russia and Ukraine, pledging to continue efforts to help secure a ceasefire during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s planned visit to Tehran.
“Since the start of the conflict, we have clearly announced our position, and by that I mean that we are against Russia’s military action in Ukraine,” Amir-Abdollahian said.
