The Iranian Foreign Ministry commented on the statement by CIA Director William Burns, according to which close cooperation between Iran and Russia in the military sphere poses a serious threat to US allies in the Middle East region.

“These baseless allegations are part of the propaganda war waged by the United States against our country. In matters of foreign policy, Tehran acts independently, it does not require anyone’s permission,” Nasser Kanani, a spokesman for the diplomatic department, said.

He also said that Russian-Iranian cooperation, which concerns not only the defense sphere, is based on common interests and is not directed against third countries. Recall that the weapons supplied by Iran, primarily UAVs, are used for strikes against Ukraine.
