TEHRAN (Worthy News) – Iran has denied delivering over 300,000 artillery shells and about a million rounds of ammunition to Russia for use in Moscow’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

The Wall Street Journal newspaper reported earlier this week that Tehran sent the military products to Russia using cargo ships in the Caspian Sea.

However, Iran’s foreign ministry said the reports were inaccurate, despite Western concerns about rapidly developing Iranian-Russian relations and evidence of military cooperation.

“Iran is against war and supports the establishment of a ceasefire and peace in Ukraine,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani in comments monitored by Worthy News.

Earlier, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian reportedly told Martin Griffiths, the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, that the Islamic Republic “does not provide military assistance to any side in the war in Ukraine.”

Tehran “does not consider the war as a solution and respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries,” including that of Ukraine, he added.

However, Kyiv says Russia has been targeting civilian infrastructure and residential areas of Ukraine with Iran-made drones for months.

Ukraine’s air force claims to have shot down more than 500 lives-threatening “kamikaze” drones produced by Iran.

The U.S. State Department said that “the Russian Federation’s deepening of relations with the Iranian regime continues to be something that is deeply concerning to us. And something that we are continuing to pay close attention to.”

The issue has also led to calls for more Western sanctions against Iran. Tehran is already under pressure over its controversial nuclear program, which Israel fears could lead to the country obtaining nuclear weapons.
