Iran says ready to help secure truce in Ukraine-Russia war

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian announced the country’s readiness to help achieve a ceasefire in the war between Ukraine and Russia.

Amirabdollahian made the announcement during a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba.

On the claims about use of Iranian drones in the war in Ukraine, Amirabdollahian said they are baseless claims and Iran strongly rejects them.

Referring to Iran’s experience in the eight-year imposed war in 1980-88, the foreign minister noted that the country is against the war in Ukraine, Yemen, or any other places.

In a related development, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations Amir Saeid Iravani said in a letter sent to the UN chief on October 21 called for preventing misuse of Resolution 2231 in connection to the issue of war in Ukraine. “The offer by Ukraine to UN experts to visit the country to inspect recovered UAVs 'in order to facilitate implementation of UN Security Council resolution 2231' lacks any legal foundation under resolution 2231.”

The Islamic Republic’s policy on the war in Ukraine follows respect for countries’ territorial integrity, not sending weapons to the sides involved in the war, halt to the war, and helping to end the displacement of people, Amirabdollahian said stressing that Iran’s foreign policy is completely clear and based on a unified standard.

Iran is ready to hold technical meetings with the participation of military experts of the two countries and without the need for the presence of any mediator, he underlined.  

Ukraine is better to not be affected by Europe’s certain extremist politicians, he added.

For his part, the Ukrainian foreign minister appreciated Iran’s stance on not dispatching weapons to the war in Ukraine.

Kuleba stressed the importance of holding technical military talks between the two countries' delegations.

He went on to say that his country will never act under the impacts of others.

Ukraine, according to the international conventions, makes the necessary efforts to bring about security to the embassies and their activities, he underlined.

The two foreign ministers also exchanged views about the latest developments in the Ukraine crisis and the bilateral issues.
