Britain accuses Iran of supplying ammunition to Russia

Jun 9, 2023

On Friday, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly accused Iran of supplying Russia with ammunition to wage war against Ukraine.

This is stated in a statement by Cleverly, quoted by Sky News.

"Iran is providing Russia with a steady stream of weapons and ammunition used to kill civilians in Ukraine," the British Foreign Secretary said, making it his first official accusation of Tehran's military assistance to Moscow.


Cleverly added that in exchange for the aid, Russia is supplying Iran with "sophisticated military technology, financial support, and advice that the regime can use to threaten our partners in the Middle East and suppress protests".

"The UK and our partners have already imposed sanctions on many of those responsible for this deadly arms trade and will continue to hold this desperate alliance to account," he emphasized.
