Iran regrets Ukraine’s decision, pledges with “appropriate response"

(MENAFN) Iran "regrets" Ukraine's decision to remove the nation's envoy and would make an “appropriate response,” according to Nasser Kanani, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, on Saturday. Attack drone supplies to Russia have been charged by Kiev as "an unfriendly act that deals a serious blow to Ukraine-Iran relations

According to Kanani, Tehran has maintained its neutrality in the confrontation between Moscow and Kiev and has expressed its desire for a "peaceful settlement" of the hostilities. Iran said that Kiev's choice was influenced by "propaganda" from international media and "unconfirmed reports."

On Friday, Ukraine stated that it would "significantly reduce" the number of Iranian diplomats working at the country's embassy and withdrew the accreditation of Tehran's ambassador to Kiev.

According to a statement from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, the suspected weapon shipment to Russia "directly contradicts the position of neutrality, respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, publicly declared by the top leadership of Iran."
