Iran Will Sell Hundreds of Ballistic Missiles to Russia.
US Ambassador for the United Nations Linda Thomas Greenfield has warned of the continued existence of the cooperation in the field of arms between Russia and the Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia.
Thomas Greenfield emphasized Friday that the United States warned the UN Security Council in the past about the possibility that Iran as well as the DPRK had plans to transfer prohibited materials to Russia.
“Since august, Iran is transferring several hundred UAVs to Russia which is in direct contradiction to UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

Russia uses UAVs from Iran to attack the energy infrastructure of Ukraine, depriving hundreds of millions of Ukrainian civilians of heat, electricity and essential services during winter. People living in Ukraine today suffer and die as a result of Iran’s assistance,” she stressed.
“We believe that Iran is currently considering the selling several hundred ballistic missiles to Russia as well as in contravention of the Council resolutions. We call on Iran to reconsider its decision and avoid taking these actions. We urge everyone who is in favor of peace to ask Iran to follow suit,” added Greenfield.
