Claims of Iran’s drone supplies to Russia hamper JCPOA talks — diplomat

These are very unwise and provocative moves on their behalf, Dmitry Polyansky said

UNITED NATIONS, October 20. /TASS/. Western claims of Iran’s alleged drone supplies to Russia will complicate the negotiations to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program, Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky told reporters.

"The United States has yet shown no practical willingness to return to its implementation [of the JCPOA]. Moreover, they continue to introduce new illegitimate unilateral sanctions against Iran. I will say that our Western colleagues, eager to shield Kyiv regime by all means possible, are particularly short-sighted in their desire to accuse Iran," the diplomat said after closed UN Security Council consultations on the matter of alleged Iranian UAV deliveries.

"These are very unwise and provocative moves on their behalf that can further complicate the fragile negotiation process aimed at the restoration of the JCPOA," Polyansky added.
