Iran Gives Military Drones To Every Country 'That Needs Them'

Sunday, 09/04/2022

An Iranian lawmaker says the Islamic Republic gives drones to Iraq and other countries to help them provide for their own security and the security of the region. 

Mohammad Javad Karimi Ghoddusi (Qoddusi), a member of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said on Sunday that Iran “generously” provides drones to every country that needs them “according to the strategy of Islam and in line with maintaining the region’s security.”

He said the country’s drone industry and all its costs are justifiable for Iran’s defense system because it has not prioritized the strategy of expensive and complex aircraft. 

Claiming that “the Americans admit their air supremacy in the world has been challenged by Iran,” he said that “the combination of Iran’s missiles and drones' capabilities has created a very extensive, deep, precise and low-cost security for the entire Islamic nation and Islamic countries.” They pay for the drones and Iran’s aid is not free, he added. 

Last week, a member of the Ukrainian parliament, Yuliya Leonidivna Klymenko, told Iran International that she was “deeply shocked and saddened" by the fact that Iran sent drones to Russia to be used in its invasion of Ukraine, noting that Moscow is going to buy 100 more drones from Iran in addition to the drones it recently bought from the Islamic Republic.

US Defense Department spokesperson Todd Breasseale said on Tuesday, August 30, that Russia has faced "numerous failures" with Iranian-made drones acquired from Tehran this month, adding that the United States assesses Russia has received the delivery of Mohajer-6 and Shahed-series unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over several days this month.
