On the instructions of President Zelensky, the temporary representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Ukraine was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
On Friday, September 23, after the Russian occupiers used Iranian-made kamikaze drones for attacks on the territory of Ukraine, the Ukrainian side decided to deprive the Iranian ambassador to Ukraine of accreditation, as well as to significantly reduce the number of diplomatic staff at the Iranian embassy in Kyiv.
About this reported in the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
The message states that the temporary representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Ukraine was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
“It was stated to the Iranian side that the supply of Iranian weapons to Russia for its further use by Russian troops against the Ukrainian civilian population and the Defense Forces directly contradicts the position of neutrality, respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, publicly declared by the top leadership of Iran,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry emphasized.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stressed that the supply of weapons to Russia for waging war against Ukraine is an unfriendly act that deals a serious blow to the relations between Ukraine and Iran.
“In response to such an unfriendly act, the Ukrainian side decided to deprive the ambassador of Iran in Ukraine of his accreditation, as well as to significantly reduce the number of diplomatic personnel of the Iranian embassy in Kyiv,” the message reads.
We will remind, Russian troops attacked Odesa on September 23 by Iranian kamikaze drones from the Black Sea. As a result of the attack of the occupiers, one person died.
