Vedant Patel, Principal Deputy Spokesperson Bureau of Global Public Affairs at US State Department referred to the news on Iran’s sale of drones to Russia.
“As National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told CNN in July, the U.S. Government has information indicating Iran is preparing to provide Russia with several hundred UAVs, including weapons-capable UAVs. We’ve also said that we assess an official Russian delegation recently received a showcase of Iranian attack-capable UAVs. We can confirm that during the last several weeks, Russian officials conducted training in Iran as part of the agreement of the UAV transfers.
Let me be clear: We will vigorously enforce all U.S. sanctions on both the Russian and Iranian arms trades, Patel said at the briefing in Washington, DC.
