Britain warned on Tuesday that Russia is set to provide Iran with advanced military technology that will threaten security in the Middle East and around the world.
Moscow will supply the military components to Tehran in return for Iranian attack drones which Russia has been using in its invasion of Ukraine, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told parliament.
In a statement to MPs, Wallace said Iran should be held responsible for backing Russia’s invasion of its neighbor.
“We must hold their enablers to account,” he said. “Iran has become one of Russia’s top military backers. In return for having supplied more than 300 kamikaze drones, Russia intends to provide it with advanced military components, undermining both Middle East and international security. We must expose this deal.”
Wallace did not specify what technology was being transferred to Iran.
