Iran’s military-technical cooperation with Russia causes serious concern in the United States.
Russia is helping Iran develop its missile program in exchange for supplying drones for the war against Ukraine. This was stated by the director of the US CIA, William Burns, in an interview with CBS.
According to him, the alliance between Iran and Russia is rapidly developing, which is quite an alarming signal.
“The Iranians have already provided the Russians with hundreds of military drones, which they use to inflict pain on the civilian population and civilian infrastructure of Ukraine. We know that they have provided ammunition for artillery as well as for tanks,” Burns said.
At the same time, the CIA “sees signs” that Russia is offering to help Iran develop its missile program and is considering supplying fighter jets in exchange for further assistance.
Cooperation between Iran and Russia is the latest news
The White House believes that Iran intends to increase its support for Russia in the war against Ukraine. In return, he will receive fighters and other equipment.
According to British intelligence, Russia has exhausted its stockpile of Iranian kamikaze drones. Approximately since February 15, there have been no reports of the use of Iranian kamikaze drones in Ukraine.
Against this background, the Iranian authorities announced that the country had successfully created a long-range cruise missile. It is claimed that the cruise missile has already been put into service.
